Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies. Cardiac toxicity after conventional antineoplastic drugs (eg, anthracyclines) has historically been a relevant issue.

Peripartum cardiomyopathy is defined as left ventricular dilation and failure, first developing during the third trimester of pregnancy or in the first 6 months postpartum. In all patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy and myocarditis, the myocardial biopsy was performed within 1 week of onset of symptoms. Seven (50%) of the patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy had dramatic improvement within 6 weeks of follow-up, and 6 (43%) died.

n Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the heart muscle, diagnosed by established histological, immunological, and immunohistochemical criteria (the World. Health tional Society and Federation of Cardiology, 1995). n The true incidence of myocarditis is unknown because the majority of cases are asymptomatic. n Involvement of the myocardium has been reported in 1 to 5 % of patients with acute viral infections. n Autopsy studies have revealed varying estimates of the incidence of myocarditis.

Cardiomyopathy is a group of diseases that affect the heart muscle. Early on there may be few or no symptoms. Some people may have shortness of breath, feel tired, or have swelling of the legs due to heart failure. An irregular heart beat may occur as well as fainting. Those affected are at an increased risk of sudden cardiac.
