Myocarditis

Myocarditis is a condition of inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis is inflammation of the outer lining of the heart. Myopericarditis is where both occur simultaneously. In all three cases, the body’s immune system causes inflammation in response to an infection or some other trigger.

Myocarditis can be caused by Covid-19 infection as well as a side effect of Covid-19 Vaccination (see also myocarditis).
