Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy Precipitated by COVID-19 and Influenza A Coinfection.

Academic Article


  • Myocardial injury is associated with excess mortality in severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections, but the mechanisms of injury are diverse. We describe a case of stress-induced cardiomyopathy in the setting of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza A coinfection. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.).
