[Heart involvement in mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD)].

Abstract

The incidence of cardial involvement in mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) was investigated by two-dimensional echocardiography. Pericardial manifestation was found in two patients. Mitral valve prolapse was detected in 61% of the patients, which may indicate a specific cardial involvement in MCTD. Myocardial changes were rare.
