    Abstract

    We present a case of acute myocarditis with left ventricular dysfunction and intracavitary thrombosis in a 55-year-old man with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection (coronavirus disease 2019) who was admitted with bilateral atypical pneumonia. The patient was treated with anticoagulation and optimal heart failure therapy and had an improvement of left ventricular function and thrombus resolution. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.).
