The prognostic role of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) has not been clarified in acute myocarditis (AM) with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF). This study sought to evaluate the role of CMR and LGE in the prognosis of AM with preserved LVEF.
