We described eleven patients positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The younger age and female gender seem to contribute to poor outcomes possibly. Furthermore, the left ventricle ejection fraction and pro-BNP improvement within the first week of treatment might indicate a good prognosis.
Though generally self-limited, viral myocarditis can lead to acute cardiac failure or chronic dilated cardiomyopathy. We describe three cases of human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) associated -myocarditis unresponsive to conventional therapies, with detection of HHV-6 evidences and initiation of antiviral treatment, we observed significant improvement in clinical status of patients.
