Abstract

Myocardial injury occurs in 20% to 30% of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 infection, and cardiovascular complications contribute to approximately 40% of all COVID-19–related deaths. Most cases of myocarditis related to COVID-19 infection occur in the acute phase of infection and are self-limited. We describe a case of delayed-onset fulminant myocarditis that developed 5 weeks after mild COVID-19 infection leading to cardiogenic shock and the need for mechanical circulatory support. Our case illustrates how myocarditis can occur as a late complication of COVID-19 infection, even in those with a mild initial course.
