Drug induced pericarditis is reported very rarely. We presented a patient with pericarditis due to antituberculosis therapy induced pericarditis and chronic renal failure. We did not find clinical and serologic findings of pseudo-lupus clinical symptoms and pericarditis regressed in a short time with cessation of antituberculosis drugs and initiated steroid.
