What is Dressler's syndrome ? 

Dressler's syndrome is characterized by persistent pyrexia, pericarditis and pleurisy. 

It was first described in 1956 when Dressier recognized that post-myocardial infarction chest pain is not caused by coronary artery insufficiency.

 It usually occurs 2-3 weeks after myocardial infarction and is considered to be of autoimmune aetiology; it responds to NSAIDs.
