Abstract

Myocarditis is a rare complication of toxoplasmosis, especially in immunocompetent individuals. We present a case of a 28-year-old man with a history of fever and chest pain suggestive of myocarditis. Fever, along with lymphadenopathy, electrocardiography, imaging, and serologic testing, showed Toxoplasma gondii as the probable etiology. An excellent response to treatment confirmed the diagnosis.
