    Two weeks after hospital discharge for documented myocardial infarction, a 65 years old returns to your office concerned about low grade fever and pleuritic chest pain. There is no associated shortness of breath. Lungs are clear to auscultation and the heart is free of murmur, gallop or rub. ECG is unchanged from the last one in the hospital. Which therapy is the most likely to be effective?

    1- Antibiotic
    2- Anticoagulation with warfarin
    3- An anti-inflammatory agent
    4-An increase in antianginal medication
    5- An anxiolytic

    It is a Dressler Syndrom, it is an Autoimmiun Syndrom , and the treatment of choice is NSAIDs.......if there is no response after 2 days, we add Cortison
