developed the day after vaccination and cardiac biomarkers were elevated; rapid surveillance such as cardiac markers, electrocardiography, or cardiac imaging should be required for its early diagnosis



Echocardiography showed minimal pericardial effusion but normal myocardial contractility. Electrocardiography revealed diffuse ST elevation in lead II, and V2-5. Cardiac magnetic resonance images showed the high signal intensity of T2- short tau inversion recovery image, the high value of T2 mapping sequence, and late gadolinium enhancement in basal inferior and inferolateral wall.’
