Viral myocarditis is a life-threatening disease characterized by severe cardiac inflammation that can result in heart failure or sudden cardiac death in previously healthy adults. In a subset of patients, it may result in the development of dilated cardiomyopathy due to the chronic inflammatory process. Despite its clinical need, specific treatments for myocarditis are currently not available.
