Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the myocardium with a wide range of clinical presentations, from subtle to devastating. It usually manifests in an otherwise healthy person and can result in rapidly progressive (and fatal) heart failure and arrhythmia. Recently, myocarditis has been associated with COVID-19 and, to a much lesser degree, linked to mRNA vaccines against SARS-CoV-2. Given the potential seriousness of the condition, are you able to recognize key aspects of myocarditis presentation, and do you know best practices for management? Test yourself with this short quiz.
