Abstract

The authors report the case of a 33-year-old male on medication for an upper respiratory tract infection, who, when in a public place with his friends, died sudden and unexpectedly. Post-mortem examination revealed a “Mixed Cellularity (Eosinophilic-rich) Acute Myocarditis”, most likely due to drug hypersensitivity. In an era of broad and increasing therapeutic drugs use, the case draws attention to the risk of medication underlying Sudden Cardiac Death.
