ABSTRACT
An unusual case of heart block associated with progressive myocardial damage has been demonstrated. This occurred over a period of 25 years following diphtheritic myocarditis. A satisfactory result followed treatment with an implantable pacemaker. The increasing myocardial thresholds and the cardiomegaly, however, would appear to indicate future difficulties.

    Background: Acute myocarditis may mimic myocardial infarction, since affected patients complain of "typical" chest pain, the ECG changes are identical to those observed in acute coronary syndromes, and serum markers are increased. We describe a case series of presumptive myocarditis with ST...

    The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a representative signal containing information about the condition of the heart. The shape and size of the P-QRS-T wave, the time intervals between its various peaks, may contain useful information about the nature of disease afflicting the heart. However, these...

    Background: T2w-CMR is used widely to assess myocardial edema. Quantitative T1-mapping is also sensitive to changes in free water content. We hypothesized that T1-mapping would have a higher diagnostic performance in detecting acute edema than dark-blood and bright-blood T2w-CMR. Methods: We...

    Determination of the etiology of myocardial infarction (MI) in children can present a challenge to the practitioner since cases of pediatric MI are rare and the causes can be diverse. We report an unusual case of pediatric eosinophilic myocarditis that presented with MI.
