Abstract

Serologic studies in a 9-year-old black girl with acute infectious myocarditis revealed a dramatic rise in antichlamydial antibodies. All viral titers obtained during the course of her illness remained nonreactive or demonstrated no change. Chlamydia trachomatis infection, as a cause of myocarditis, is strongly suggested by this case report.
