Background: Allergic autoimmune reaction causing Myopericarditis post vaccine is extremely rare. The patient had received meningococcal vaccine (Groups A, C, W-135 and Y conjugate vaccine oligosaccharides) 5 days prior to the onset of symptoms.
Case summary: We report a case of previously healthy young patient who received Meningococcal vaccine (Meningococcal Groups A, C, W-135 and Y conjugate vaccine), and diagnosed as acute reactive Pericarditis 5 days after vaccination. Treated with Acetylsalicylic acid and colchicine followed by resolution of the cardiac inflammation and subsequent complete recovery. Reviewing the literature, we did not find a similar report.
Conclusion: This case highlights that rare complication, reactive pericarditis, could happen after Meningococcal vaccine like after post Meningococcal infection.
