[Adult onset Still's disease revealed by a myocarditis].

Abstract

Adult onset Still's disease is an inflammatory disorder characterized by daily spiking high fevers, arthritis and an evanescent rash. It is a rare disease of unknown aetiology and can be life-threatening. We present a case of adult onset Still's disease associated with myocarditis requiring the use of invasive ventilation, in which the patient responded well to systemic steroids.
