Abstract

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.
