The extreme diversity of clinical manifestations has made the true incidence of myocarditis difficult to ascertain precisely. 6% to 12% [2, 3]. Myocarditis has been identified as the cause of dilated cardiomyopathy in approximately 10% of cases of unexplained dilated cardiomyopathy in a large prospective series from Johns Hopkins Medical Center [4]. The Dallas pathological criteria have served for over two decades as standardized guidelines for the histopathological diagnosis of myocarditis [5].

These observations argue against a critical role for IL-12p70 in the development of autoimmune myocarditis in mice. In fact, IL-23, a novel cytokine of the expanding IL-12-like cytokine family, is composed of a unique p19 subunit and a shared p40 subunit common with IL-12. Moreover, the IL-23 receptor shares the B1 chain with the IL-12R together with another transmembrane protein [43]. Thus, IL-23 rather than IL-12 appears to be responsible for autoimmune myocarditis development, and current levels of evidence suggest that IL-23 promotes the expansion of another specific CD4+ T cell subset characterized by IL-17 production [39, 44].

Ventricular tachycardia is an uncommon initial manifestation of lymphocytic myocarditis but may develop during long-term follow-up [1, 2]. The Giant Cell Myocarditis Study Group has reported an initial incidence of ventricular tachycardia 27 G. William Dec below 5% in their multicenter cohort [11]. However, ventricular tachyarrhythmia and high-grade conduction defects requiring implantable cardioverter defibrillator or pacemaker placement frequently complicate long-term management. Natural history The natural history of myocarditis varies based on its initial clinical presentation.
