What is Pericarditis?

Pericarditis is inflammation of the pericardium, the thin fluid-filled sac surrounding the heart. The pericardium holds the heart in place and shields it from infection; there is a small amount of fluid between the heart and the pericardium to ensure there is no rubbing between them.
