Giant Cell Myocarditis

slide 7 of 8


Comments:
Multinucleated giant cells can be better appreciated in this high magnification view. The diagnosis requires an endomyocardial biopsy. There is no cure. Treatment usually consists of immunosuppressive therapy whose aim is to delay the eventual need for cardiac transplantation. Giant cell myocarditis recurs in the transplanted heart in about 25% of cases.
