Previous Vaccinations:
Other Medications: Afrin nasal spray 2 pumps to each nostril every other day.
Current Illness: Congestion and runny nose. Denies fevers, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, sick contacts, coughing, wheezing.
Preexisting Conditions: None.
Allergies: No food allergies, no medication allergies. (+) pollen allergies.
Diagnostic Lab Data: Patient is a 17-year-old male with no significant past medical history who presents with 1 day of sudden onset sharp chest pain, found to have diffuse ST elevation on EKG as well as elevated troponin consistent with acute myopericarditis. Must consider whether presentation is related to patient having received his 2nd COVID-19 vaccine 2 days prior to presentation. COVID-19 spike protein antibodies are positive but no evidence of prior infection. However, will also evaluate possible viral causes for the myopericardial inflammation. Patient is currently hemodynamically stable but admitted to the PICU for telemetry due to risk for dysrythmia given myocardial inflammation. Working dx of myopericarditis secondary to possible COVID vaccine. #CV - Continue indomethacin 50mg TID - EKG from this AM: NSR with ST/T changes - ECHO: mild left ventricular apical dyskinesis (left ventricular systolic function borderline low with decreased wall excursion at apex with good RV systolic function and no significant pericardial effusion). -- Repeat ECHO today: globally borderline mildly depressed systolic function with mild hypokinesis as the ventricular apex. No significant pericardial effusion. Stable findings from ECHO 5/16/21. - Troponin elevated to 1.63 $g 1.72 $g 1.75 $g 2.52 - CKMB: 109.1 (0-6.3) -- Ratio 14.4% (0-3.9%) - CPK: 759 - Cardio on consult -- recommends daily trending of labs - Qday ECGs ++ when pt clinically is symptomatic - Monitor for signs for clinical worsening #ID - COVID-19 spike protein Ab: (+), COVID-19 Nucleocapsid Ab: (-) - Obtain workup for viral myocarditis (CMV, EBV, adenovirus, enterovirus, coxsackievirus, adenovirus, Parvo B19) -- F/u results - RVP: negative - ESR 14 $g 15 - CRP 8.12 $g 6.54 - ID on consult -- recommends the MISC lab workup for possible MISC vs. adverse reaction to vaccine (CBC, CMP, BNP, COVID PCR, COVID Ab, ESR, CRP, BCx, UA, UCx, fibrinogen, PT/PTT, D-dimer, Ferritin, Procalcitonin, LDH, VBG (iCal, lactate), troponin, CPK). #FEN/GI - Regular diet - Pepcid 20mg BID
CDC Split Type:

Write-up: 5/14/21 - day 1 after vaccine dose #2 - had fevers, body aches, chills, fatigue. 5/15/21 - day 2 after vaccine dose #2 - began to have chest pain that started out at 5/10 and then became constant and persistent sharp, 10/10 chest pain that was worse with lying back and improved with sitting up and leaning forward. Pt went to Urgent Care, had ECG done and demonstrated ST wave changes where he was brought to ED and ECG confirmed ST/T wave changes and Troponin T was elevated to 1.62 - thus with these findings and the chest pain that was consistent with pericarditis - diagnosis of myopericarditis was made.

CDC Split Type:

Write-up: 17 y.o. male who presents with chest pain, elevated troponins and diffuse ST elevations concerning for pericarditis vs myocarditis admitted for cardiac monitoring and evaluation. Pt states he has had 1 day of sudden onset L shoulder pain and chest pain. Endorses dyspnea due to pain with deep breaths, denies tachypnea, nausea/vomiting, diaphoresis. Endorses mild chills and aches after COVID vaccine 3 days prior to onset of symptoms, denies any fever, URI symptoms, diarrhea, rash, known COVID contacts. Pain continued to worsen and spread across his chest, causing presentation to ED this afternoon. No history of PE, DVT, long travel, recent surgery, malignancy, alcohol or cocaine use. Significant cardiac history in family: dad with CAD w/LAD blockage, both parents with hypertension. At ED, labs notable for elevated troponin 0.456, repeat 0.67 and diffuse ST elevations on EKG concerning for pericarditis. COVID neg, CXR unremarkable, blood cx drawn, no abx started. Patient was given toradol for pain with minimal improvement. Peds cardiology was consulted and patient was transferred to different ED for further care. At different ED, repeat EKG showed similar diffuse ST elevations in I, II, aVL. Repeat troponins uptrending (4.91), proBNP 562, ESR 43, CRP 18. Mildly tachycardic but otherwise hemodynamically stable. Given tylenol for pain. Cardiology recommended admission for trending troponins, echo and cardiac monitoring. CV: Troponins were trended every 12 hours with a max of 4.91. His last troponin checked on the morning of discharge was 0.41. He had an echo that showed normal cardiac function, an MRI that indicated normal ventricular size and function, with minimal or healing and inflammation or mild myocarditis. During his admission, he had continuous cardiorespiratory monitoring, that did not show any arrhythmias. Resp: On 2L NC for comfort, no respiratory distress or hypoxia. FENGI: Regular diet Neuro: Ibuprofen scheduled and tylenol PRN for pain. He was initially started on ibuprofen 800 mg every 8 hours, but was starting to have pain prior to being due for medicine every 8 hours so his regimen was changed to 600 mg every 6 hours which controlled his pain adequately. ID: Myocarditis panel sent with some results still pending. Thus far, he is CMV negative, EBV IgG was positive but not IgM. RVP was negative. This all occurred in the setting receiving the Covid vaccine 3 days prior to presentation, which has been reported as a rare reaction to the Covid vaccine. At the time of discharge, labs pending results include mycoplasma pneumonia, coxsackie, parvovirus, enterovirus. Etiology of myocarditis remains unclear at this time, could be related to infectious etiology not yet clear to us, vs related to his COVID vaccine prior to admission.

Write-up: back was hurting; acute chest pain; elevated white blood count; acute pericarditis; Arm pain; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable other health professional (parent). A 16-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection), dose 2 intramuscular, administered in Arm Left on 29Apr2021 15:30 at the age of 16 years old (Lot Number: E000167) as 2nd dose, single for covid-19 immunisation. The patient had no medical history, no known allergies. Concomitant medications received within 2 weeks of vaccination included vitamins nos (MULTIVITAMIN [VITAMINS NOS]), acetaminophen. The patient previously received the first dose of bnt162b2 (lot number: EN6208) intramuscular in Arm left on 07Apr2021 13:00 at the age of 16 years old for covid-19 immunisation. Facility where the most recent COVID-19 vaccine was administered was Other. The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. The patient experienced Arm pain the first few days after receiving vaccine (2021). Then last night (02May2021), at 03:00 he came to his parent''s room and said his back was hurting. His parent gave him one Advil. He tried to go back to sleep but came back an hour later saying it felt like his heart was being squeezed. The doctor on call recommended they go to the ER. At the ER, they performed 2 EKGs, bloodwork, chest X-ray and an echocardiogram on 02May2021. His diagnosis upon discharge: acute chest pain and acute pericarditis on 02May2021. His bloodwork showed an elevated white blood count on 02May2021. They were to follow up with the pediatric cardiologist later this week. This events happened three days after his receiving his 2nd Covid vaccine shot. The adverse events result in Emergency room department or urgent care. Treatment received for the adverse events included Two EKGs, bloodwork, chest X-ray and echocardiogram. Prior to vaccination, the patient was not diagnosed with COVID-19. Since the vaccination, the patient hadn''t been tested for COVID-19. The outcome of the events was recovering.; Sender''s Comments: The causal relationship between BNT162B2 and the events cannot be excluded as the information available in this report is limited and does not allow a medically meaningful assessment. This case will be reassessed once additional information becomes available. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events.

Diagnostic Lab Data: See above
CDC Split Type:

Write-up: "The patient presented with symptoms of pericarditis and palpitations. Evaluation revealed elevated troponin levels consistent with myocardial injury, ST elevation on ECG (consistent with pericardial inflammation) and short episodes of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia that were not hemodynamically significant. Echocardiography revealed normal anatomy and normal ventricular / valvular function with no pericardial effusion. He was observed in hospital on telemetry for 24 hours and transitioned to outpatient care with exercise restrictions as well as oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and colchicine therapy. Clinical diagnosis was peri-/myocarditis without ventricular dysfunction."
