Description

We are reporting an unusual case of cat-scratch disease in a young adolescent girl presenting with recurrent ascites. The illness started with nonspecific symptoms followed by ascites and an axillary lymph node enlargement. She had recurrent ascites for 18 months associated with constrictive pericarditis. Following pericardiectomy, she had a resolution of ascites and was back to her normal life. This is a first documented report of a constrictive pericarditis following cat scratch diseases in English literature.
