Abstract

Myocarditis associated with bacterial enteritis has only rarely been described in literature. The clinical manifestation of the disease is often oligosymptomatic, so the real incidence could be underestimated. A case of myocarditis in a 31-year-old male patient having Salmonella enteritidis infection is reported. The clinical course and problems concerning the diagnosis are discussed. The possibility of myocardial infection should be considered in any patient with cardiac complaints during gastrointestinal infection. (Cardiol J 2007; 14: 589-591)
