Abstract
A 7-month-old girl with no medical history was treated with mechanical circulatory support due to myocarditis. Her cardiac contractility did not improve despite more than one week of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation treatment. Thus, we planned a heart transplant. However, a high level of cytomegalovirus was found in blood laboratory results by quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The patient's heart contractility recovered to normal range four days after ganciclovir treatment. She was discharged with slightly decreased cardiac contractility with a left ventricular ejection fraction of 45%.
