Write-up: Pericarditis; a-fib; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 78-year-old female patient received the 2nd dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EL9269) via an unspecified route of administration in the left arm on 09Feb2021 as single dose for Covid-19 immunization. Medical history included chronic lymphocytic leukemia, thyroid cancer, right lobe was removed. Concomitant medications included ibrutinib (IMBRUVICA) for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, levothyroxine sodium (LEVOXYL) for thyroid cancer, vitamins. The patient previously received the 1st dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EL1283) in the left arm on 19Jan2021 for Covid-19 immunization, with 0.3mg on the card. On 08Jun2021, the patient developed atrial fibrillation and pericarditis. 4 months after the second COVID 19 vaccine, she developed pericarditis. Like the male guys get from the vaccine. She was just curious. The patient had heard that these can be side effects for young boys. She wanted to know if there''s a report on atrial fibrillation and pericarditis for people belonging to her age group. At first they thought she had A-fib from one of her other pills, but they also had to pull 16oz bloody fluid off of her heart. They put her on pills for the A-fib. They think the A-Fib could be related to her other pill, but they couldn''t figure out the fluid. The biopsy didn''t answer the question. She was not on the medication that caused the A-fib anymore. That medication was Imbruvica for her CLL, Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. On that medication 5% of people can get A-fib. She was on it 2.5 years. Her Imbruvica was 140mg. She was no longer on it. She wanted to donate the ones she didn''t use, but they wouldn''t let her. Outcome of the event pericarditis was recovered in 2021, of the event a-fib was unknown. Follow-up attempts are completed. No further information is expected.
