Abstract

Patients with cardiac sarcoidosis may present with clinical and morphological features similar to arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) or cardiomyopathy (ARVC). Three cases of cardiac sarcoidosis are presented that clinically mimicked ARVD or ARVC until a pathology diagnosis of sarcoidosis was made at biopsy or autopsy. A diagnostic distinction, while often difficult to make, is important since treatment with corticosteroids may benefit those with sarcoidosis but is not expected to be useful in cases with ARVD or ARVC.
