A 60-year-old male with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, conduction disorders, post-COVID-19 myopericarditis and heart failure was admitted to the hospital’s cardiology department. Blood tests revealed an increase in CPK activity, troponin T elevation and high titers of anticardiac antibodies. Whole exome sequencing showed the presence of the pathogenic variant NM_213599:c.2272C>T of the gene. Results of the skeletal muscle biopsy excluded the diagnosis of systemic amyloidosis. Microscopy of the muscle fragment demonstrated sclerosis of the perimysium, moderate lymphoid infiltration, sclerosis of the microvessels, dystrophic changes and a lack of cross striations in the muscle fibers. Hypertrophy of the LV with a low contractile ability, atrial fibrillation, weakness of the distal skeletal muscles and increased plasma CPK activity and the results of the skeletal muscle biopsy suggested a diagnosis of a late form of distal myopathy (Miyoshi-like distal myopathy, MMD3). Post-COVID-19 myopericarditis, for which genetically modified myocardium could serve as a favorable background, caused heart failure decompensation.
