Giant-cell myocarditis is a disease of relatively young, predomÂinantly healthy adults. The patients usually die of heart failure and ventricular arrhythmia unless a cardiac transplantation is performed. We are reporting here an autopsy case of idiopathic giant cell myocarditis with no symptoms in a 27-year old -worker who died suddenly. The purpose of this report is to emphasize that idiopathic giant cell myocarditis is a rare disease and that it could exist in the absence of any symptomatic heart disease.
