Causes[edit]

There should be a list of causes on this page, from Dressler's to tuberculosis. JFW | T@lk 18:28, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I added a list of causes, though it is incomplete. Josh 11:01, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
Can steroid abuse cause this? I had a neighbor drop dead of Cardiac Tamponade at age 29 and he seemed to be in pretty good health . . . . except that he looked like Popeye the Sailor Man after eating the can of spinach - we always suspected our neighbor of taking steroids. Can taking steroids (the kind that young men take to "beef up") cause this??? Thanks in advance to anybody who knows. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Betathetapi545 (talkcontribs) 09:12, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
