At the Pericarditis Alliance, we are dedicated to the proper diagnosis and treatment of pericarditis. It is estimated that 5% of all patients visiting the emergency room with nonischemic chest pain in a given year are suffering from pericarditis.

Our goal is to educate patients and medical professionals about the diagnosis and most current treatments and protocols for pericarditis, and to better recognize complicated pericarditis cases that manifest with atypical symptoms or do not respond to NSAIDs.
