    Bacterial Etiologies Isolated bacterial myocarditis is uncommon although extension from adjacent loci of bacterial infective endocarditis is possible.[] myocarditis Late stages may show fibrosis that is focal or diffuse but the distribution is often random (see the image below), in contrast to the subendocardial fibrosis[] Acute viral myocarditis is usually associated with a lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate.[]

  • Fungal Myocarditis
