Dylan released; full recovery expected

Bob Dylan was released from a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery from an infection that caused swelling of the sac around the heart, a spokesman said Monday.

Dylan was released during the weekend from an undisclosed hospital where he had “tests and treatment for pericarditis brought on by histoplasmosis,” said Elliott Mintz.

“Doctors are continuing to treat him and they are confident that he will make a full recovery in four to six weeks,” Mintz said.

Dylan, 56, entered a hospital May 25 after experiencing chest pains.

The hospitalization forced cancellation of a European concert tour.

Dylan plans to fulfill a U.S. concert schedule after his recuperation, Mintz said.
