For the diagnosis of the patients underwent an electrocardiogram (changes may be very different), echocardiography (reflects the presence of myocardial damage without specifying its nature), X-rays of the heart (marked increase in the shadow of the heart), laboratory tests (identify active inflammation).
Treatment of myocarditis depends on its cause. When myocarditis of any nature shall be appointed bed rest. Prescribe anti-inflammatory and desensitizing (reduces allergic disposition of the body) treatments. If the nature of the bacterial myocarditis, the prescribed antibiotics.

Before treatment, the patient is required to cardioneurosis conducted a comprehensive survey in order to avoid heart disease.
