The case of a young man presenting with an acute myocarditis is described. Transthoracic echocardiography showed severe asymmetric thickening of the posterolateral left ventricle with associated hypokinesis. These abnormalities resolved following the patient's recovery from the acute illness. Asymmetric posterolateral myocardial thickening has not previously been reported in acute myocarditis.
