Int Cardio Res J.
Bacterial pericarditis caused by
Streptococcus Milleri Group (SMG) strains is a particularly exceptional pathology. All the eight previous reported cases were under the care of medical teams and the seven existed reports in medical journals were more or less from this perspective.
Herein, we reported a unique case of a pericardial-cutaneous fistula resulting from a recurrent purulent pericardial effusion caused by SMG strains, which had been treated with open surgical drainage two months before. A thorough review of the surgical treatment options and the results has also been presented.
