Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the myocardium, due to the low incidence and the variability of the clinical course, the diagnosis is an exclusion one. The etiology is mainly viral, although a shift of the specific agent in recent years has taken place. Treatment is controversial and the prognosis related to dilated myocardiopathy is generally bad. We present the clinical case of a patient with myocarditis due to cytomegalovirus in the cardiology department of our Hospital. We conducted a bibliographic review of the topic to help to determine the etiology, the treatment and to be able to establish a prognosis at the discharge.

Keywords : myocarditis; cytomegalovirus; dilated myocardiopathy Hospital Regional ISSSTE, Puebla.
