Variable: Severe myocarditis either improves quickly or results in death. Other forms linger for months and eventually resolve. Chronic forms stabilize but never resolve.

It varies: Some patients will have normal heart function return within a few weeks. Some have persistently decreased function. Lastly, some patients continue to deteriorate and may require consideration for heart transplantation.
