Abstract

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an example of inflammatory bowel disease that can be manifested by extraintestinal complications including cardiac disorders. The most commonly reported — pericarditis — occurs in 0.23% of all UC patients. The knowledge about the etiology of pericarditis is important to implement accurate therapy. However, the diagnosis is not always clear and can be connected with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. In this case, we present a myopericarditis in the course of UC exacerbation.
