    Abstract

    Influenza myocarditis is a rare but life-threatening complication of influenza infection. Pneumonitis is a well-known complication of influenza infection, and chest computed tomography (CT) is useful for diagnosing pneumonitis. In addition, myocarditis should be considered in cases of pulmonary congestion observed on chest CT.
