Resumen

PARISI, Coloma et al. Giant Cell Myocarditis Mimicking an Acute Myocardial Infarction. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2009, vol.77, n.1, pp. 60-62. ISSN 1850-3748.

The giant cell myocarditis (GCM) is a rare disease, of unknown origin, and probably of autoimmune etiology. It can occur as refractory heart failure, associate with ventricular arrhythmias, and mimicking an acute myocardial infarction in certain cases. Its prognosis is usually ominous, unless immunosupressive therapy or cardiac transplant is performed, the latter with a high recurrence.

Palabras clave : Myocarditis; Myocardial Infarction; Heart Failure.
