COVID-19 associated viral myocarditis: does it exist?

Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a lethal pandemic that has claimed millions of lives worldwide. While respiratory involvement is the most common and most virulent manifestation of COVID-19, there is enough data to suggest that myocardial injury reflected through elevated troponin levels is seen in around 7-28% of patients and is related with increased morbidity and mortality.
