Arthropathy in Dressler's syndrome.
  1. C. Davidson


    Three patients developed a polyarthritis in association with Dressler's (post-myocardial infarction) syndrome. Joint involvement was more pronounced in the upper limbs and persisted many months after other features of Dressler's syndrome had settled.
