Sheth SP, Gandhi R. Ventricular Arrhythmia and COVID-19 Vaccine-associated Myocarditis. Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2023;42(4):e112-e113. doi:10.1097/INF.0000000000003833
A 17-year-old male presented with COVID-19 vaccine-associated myocarditis. Six months later, due to chest discomfort with exercise, the patient underwent an exercise stress test that revealed a 3-beat run of nonsustained ventricular tachycardia at 230 bpm at peak exercise. The long-term outcomes of COVID-19 vaccine-associated myocarditis are unclear. This patient had nonsustained ventricular tachycardia over 6 months after diagnosis.
