Core Tip In this retrospective study involving 42 children with myocarditis, we delineated the heterogeneous and unspecific clinical presentation of this condition, in order to provide clinical clues to improve its early recognition. Also, we found that the presence of LVEF < 30% on echocardiography on admission was the major predictor for poor early outcomes. Due to echocardiography is not widely available at emergency departments, we found that younger ages (< 2 year-old), a prolonged course of the disease (> 7 d), and increased NT-proBNP levels (> 5000 pg/mL) could help to identify these high-risk patients.
