Involvement of the pericardium in meningococcal disease is a well-recognized but rare complication. Isolated meningococcal pericarditis is defined as purulent pericarditis without clinical evidence of meningococcemia. Neisseria meningitidis serotypes C, B, and W135 have been previously described to cause pericarditis. This is the 1st case report of isolated meningococcal myopericarditis due to N. meningitidis serotype Y.
