Circulating cardiac troponins levels and cardiac dysfunction in children with acute and fulminant viral myocarditis
Acta Pediatrica, 06/29/2010
Al–Biltagi M et al. – Cardiac troponins levels can predict the severity of myocarditis and the prognosis on the short–term level. Fulminant myocarditis was associated with higher levels of both cTn I & cTn T than acute myocarditis. Despite that fulminant myocarditis has a more aggressive course, the risk of developing cardiomyopathy was less than in acute myocarditis.
