In brief: Complicates "cold"

Many cases of lymphocytic myocarditis are probably caused by the coxsackie virus, which produces mild viral illnesses most of the time.
Some people, for unknown reasons, have it travel to the heart, or it may excite an immune response. South of the border, lymphocytic myocarditis is often chagas' trypanosomiasis.
