Özet

Although pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus may cause an upper respiratory tract infection similar to that caused by seasonal influenza, it can lead to serious complications such as pneumonia, encephalitis, and myocarditis. We describe a 2-year-old girl admitted with fever, cough, and vomiting followed by acute respiratory distress and diagnosed as H1N1-related myopericarditis. (Turk Arch Ped 2011; 46: 337-9)
