To answer your question regarding prognosis may depend on the underlying cause.  In about 90% of acute pericarditis, the underlying cause is unknown.  

Other common causes include infection, kidney failure, heart attack (MI).  There can be a malignancy, damage from radiation, and direct injury.  

Thanks for your question, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  Take care, and i wish you the best going forward,
