Abstract

Ventricular aneurysm as late complication has been described in cardiac sarcoidosis and occasionally in giant cell myocarditis. The images from the present case of ventricular aneurysm formation as a late complication of giant cell myocarditis underline a potential cause of sudden arrhythmic death in patients who survive this life-threatening condition in the absence of recurrent inflammation and with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction. Follow-up with cardiac magnetic resonance can detect small aneurysms, and an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator may be considered when this complication occurs. © 2015 Il Pensiero Scientifico Editore.
