    Abstract

    Myocarditis is being increasingly reported as a rare complication of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) mRNA vaccines. We herein report a case of myocarditis following COVID-19 mRNA vaccination in a man. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) revealed an area of high signal intensity on short T1 inversion recovery (STIR) and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), which are characteristic of myocarditis. Follow-up CMRI performed six months later revealed improvement in the myocardial edema and LGE findings. CMRI is a useful non-invasive imaging modality for making an initial diagnosis as well as for follow-up in cases of myocarditis after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination.

    Keywords: COVID-19 vaccine; cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI); myocarditis.
