Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a novel disease with multi-system involvement, but majority of patients have pulmonary and cardiovascular involvement in the acute stages. The cardiovascular impact of acute COVID-19 is well recognized ranging from myocarditis arrhythmias, thrombotic occlusion of coronary arteries, spontaneous coronary artery dissection and micro-thrombi in small coronary vessels on autopsy findings. We report a case of young male who recovered from probable mild covid-19 infection presenting few weeks later with devastating cardiovascular involvement with severe left ventricular (LV) impairment due to non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, multiple LV thrombi and embolic stroke.
