Abstract Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the heart muscle, and globally, it is an important cause of dilated cardiomyopathy. Viral infection is also an important cause of myocarditis, and the range of virus causing myocarditis has changed in the last two decades. Acute heart failure is its main clinical manifestation, although it is not exclusive. The study presents a patient under a cardiovascular condition characterized by thoracic pain, heart failure and malignant arrhythmias. Myocarditis was diagnosed and evolution was fulminant. Advanced hemodynamic monitoring was performed and mechanical circulatory support measures were taken, clinical results being bad.
