Myocarditis is generally a mild and self-limited consequence of systemic infection of cardiotropic viruses. However, patients can develop a temporary or permanent impairment of cardiac function including acute cardiomyopathy with hemodynamic compromise or severe arrhythmias. In this setting, specific causes of inflammation are associated with variable risks of death and transplantation. Recent translational studies suggest that treatments tailored to specific causes of myocarditis may impact…

Neurological Manifestations of Myocarditis
The present review discusses the neurological complications associated with myocarditis of different etiologies. Myocarditis can be idiopathic or caused by different conditions, including toxins,
Personalized Management of Myocarditis and Inflammatory Cardiomyopathy in Clinical Practice
TLDR
Current knowledge on myocarditis and inflammatory cardiomyopathy is summarized, some practical diagnostic, therapeutic, and follow-up algorithms to facilitate comprehensive individualized management of these patients are outlined, and a growing potential of available non-invasive diagnostic methods is identified.
Fulminant myocarditis: a comprehensive review from etiology to treatments and outcomes
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive account of the current understanding of FM pathophysiology and knowledge regarding its etiology, pathophysiological, treatments, and outcomes.

A Toolbox of Potential Immune-Related Therapies for Inflammatory Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
The concept and contemporary strategies to alleviate myocardial inflammation are described and light is shed on potential inflammatory targets in an evidence-based order.
Update on acute myocarditis
Management and Treatment of Myocarditis in Athletes
TLDR
The use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, specifically late gadolinium enhancement, to guide return to play decisions is becoming more common in clinical practice and establishing a stepwise approach for proper diagnosis and risk stratification in myocarditis is critical.
Management of Myocarditis in Myositis: Diagnosis and Treatment
TLDR
There is increasing epidemiological knowledge about heart involvement generally and myocarditis specifically in IIMs and a larger cooperation between rheumatologists and cardiologists in the clinical, as well as in the research field, is necessary to expand knowledge.
Viral Myocarditis-Incidence, Diagnosis and Management.
TLDR
The incidence, etiology, definition and classification, clinical manifestation, diagnosis, pathogenesis, prognosis, and treatment of viralMyocarditis are reviewed, and how acute clinical care teams might differentiate between viral myocarditis and other acute cardiac conditions is discussed.

Update on acute myocarditis
Myocarditis: A Clinical Overview
TLDR
The modern diagnostic approach to patients with clinically suspected myocarditis as well as the treatment modalities and strategy in light of up-to-date clinical experience and scientific evidence are reviewed.
Acute and Fulminant Myocarditis: a Pragmatic Clinical Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment
TLDR
The clinical features of acute myocarditis are reviewed, including its fulminant presentation, and a pragmatic approach to the diagnosis and treatment is presented, considering indications of American and European Scientific Statements and recent data derived by large contemporary registries.
State of the art: Evaluation and prognostication of myocarditis using cardiac MRI
TLDR
The utility and evolving use of cardiac MRI in clinical practice is described, with emerging sequences such as T1 and T2 parametric maps provide tissue characterization regarding inflammation without reliance on reference tissue, overcoming limitations of the LLC.
Diagnosis of myocarditis: death of Dallas criteria.
TLDR
The studies raise the question of whether the current histopathological criteria for myocardial inflammation (the Dallas criteria) are sensitive enough to identify the population with viral or autoimmune-related heart compromise.
Long-term outcome of fulminant myocarditis as compared with acute (nonfulminant) myocarditis.
TLDR
Fulminant myocarditis is a distinct clinical entity with an excellent long-term prognosis and Aggressive hemodynamic support is warranted for patients with this condition.
Fulminant Myocarditis Managed by Extracorporeal Life Support (Impella® CP): A Rare Case
TLDR
It is emphasized that myocardial failure due to fulminant myocarditis may be reversible if treated with extracorporeal life support, which thus plays an important and life-saving role.
Inflammatory Cardiomyopathic Syndromes.
TLDR
Emerging immunohistochemistry criteria and molecular diagnostic techniques are being developed that will improve diagnostic yield, provide additional clues into the pathophysiology, and offer an application of precision medicine to these important syndromes.
Giant cell myocarditis: still a conundrum. The need for a worldwide registry
TLDR
These data confirm the decreasing rate of mortality and identify the presence of either necrosis or fibrosis in EMB, NT-proBNP, and troponin T levels as factors being associated with the outcome of GCM, and a further significance was calculated for LVEF.
