In brief: Inflammation.
In medicine the suffix -itis denotes an inflammatory process.
Applied to the heart, carditis implies an inflammation of the heart muscle. This can be viral or bacterial in origin or unknown. Symptoms are related to heart failure, including arrhythmias. Treatment are supportive and should be directed toward the cause of the inflammation.
