Intractable ventricular tachycardia in a patient with giant cell myocarditis, thymoma and myasthenia gravis.


A 48-year-old man presented with a malignant thymoma in combination with myositis, myasthenia gravis, a giant cell myocarditis and recurrent intractable ventricular tachycardias. Despite various therapies (chemical, electrical and surgical), arrhythmias supervened in the presence of a normal coronary arteriogram. Active myocarditis was believed to be the mechanism of the ventricular tachycardias.
