We have been able to find only one reference2 in the clinical literature to the changes in the T wave occurring in diseases of the pericardium. Serial electrocardiographic studies, such as we have made, have not been previously carried out in the various stages of pericardial involvement, and this accounts, in a measure, for the paucity of data concerning the abnormalities appearing during inflammation, effusion, reabsorption and healing of the
