Cardiac Auto Immune Diseases

The heart and the vascular system are frequent and characteristic targets of several systemic autoimmune diseases, in particular Systemic Lupus Erythematosus(SLE), Rheumatoid Arthritis(RA) and Systemic Sclerosis(SSc). Inflammation and damage of the heart muscle leads to Myocarditis.

About 5 to 20% of cases of sudden death are due to myocarditis in young adults.

The main causes of Myocarditis are viral infections, autoimmune diseases, Environmental Toxins, and adverse reactions to medications.
