Abstract

Presented here are three cases of acute cardiac disease (myocarditis, myopericarditis, and acute atrial fibrillation) associated with Campylobacter jejuni infection, followed by a review of the corresponding literature. Since Campylobacter jejuni is the most common cause of human bacterial enteritis in developed countries, these cases emphasize the importance of keeping cardiac complications in mind when treating patients with acute gastroenteritis due to this pathogen.
