Background. Currently, myocarditis is one of the poorly studied nosological forms, a problem with a large number of unresolved issues. The polymorphism of clinical presentation, the risks of invasive studies necessary to confirm the diagnosis, the need for expensive mo-dern imaging methods, and the lack of an adequate evidence base for the treatment of myocarditis with a verified diagnosis – all of these things determine the challenges in managing patients with myocarditis.
Description of the clinical case. This article presents a clinical case of acute focal myocarditis with an infarction-like clinical course of disease in a young patient.
Conclusion. The presented clinical case illustrates the fact that a careful clinical approach using modern research methods is a necessary basis for determining the correct tactics of patient management even in the era of randomized trials and clinical recommendations.
