BACKGROUND: Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) may manifest as arrhythmia or even sudden cardiac death. Because patients with CS often present with nonspecific symptoms, normal electrocardiography, and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction, a reliable diagnostic tool for the work-up of CS is needed. Late gadolinium enhancement-cardiovascular magnetic resonance has proven diagnostic value in CS but has some limitations that may be overcome by adding newer cardiovascular magnetic resonance mapping techniques...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is increasingly being recognized. Immunosuppression with corticosteroids is the mainstay of therapy. But the optimal dose of steroids and how to assess response to therapy is not known. Prognosis is poor if these patients are untreated or undertreated. Fluorine-18-flurodeoxyglucose positron emission computed tomography ((18)FDG-PET CT) is a sensitive tool in diagnosing CS. It correlates closely with the level of granulomatous inflammation and can be used to monitor response to therapy...

PURPOSE: To evaluate CT utility for detection of cardiac or lung abnormalities in the diagnosis of organic cardiac disease in subjects with second- or third-degree atrioventricular block (AVB) excepting Wenckebach type. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 50 consecutive patients (25 male; 64±15years) with de novo third- or second-degree AVB underwent both TTE and a combination of cardiac and chest 320 slice CT (Aquilion one, Toshiba Medical) and were retrospectively analyzed...

Neurological localizations of sarcoidosis are heterogeneous and may affect virtually every part of the central or peripheral nervous system. They are often the inaugural manifestation of sarcoidosis. The diagnosis may be difficult due to the lack of extra-neurological localization. Diagnosis may be discussed in the presence of an inflammatory neurological disease, in particular in case of suggestive radiological or biological pattern. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis shows lymphocytic pleiocytosis, often with low glucose level...

Myocarditis is a diverse group of heart-specific immune processes classified by clinical and histopathological manifestations. Up to 40% of dilated cardiomyopathy is associated with inflammation or viral infection. Recent experimental studies revealed complex regulatory roles for several microribonucleic acids and T-cell and macrophage subtypes. Although the prevalence of myocarditis remained stable between 1990 and 2013 at about 22 per 100,000 people, overall mortality from cardiomyopathy and myocarditis has decreased since 2005...

BACKGROUND: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD), is a genetic disorder of the heart, which mainly involves the right ventricle. It is characterized by hypokinetic areas at the free wall of the right ventricle (RV) or both ventricles, where myocardium is replaced by fibrous or fatty tissue. ARVD is an important cause of ventricular arrhythmias in children and young adults. Although the transmission of the disease is based on hereditary, in young adults it may not show any symptoms...

A 32-year-old man presented with palpitation. He was diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis by lung biopsy. The electrocardiogram showed first-degree atrioventricular block and complete right bundle branch block (CRBBB). We planned to examine laboratory data, echocardiography, Holter monitoring, and gallium-67 scintigraphy. Before he went through all these exams, he developed ventricular tachycardia. After defibrillation was performed, his electrocardiogram revealed complete atrioventricular block. We observed elevation of serum angiotensin-converting enzyme levels...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography (CT) for the detection of myocardial fibrosis, we compared the frequency of abnormal late enhancement (LE) in left ventricular myocardium (LVM) on CT with that on gadolinium-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with various myocardial diseases. METHODS: Fifty-six patients with suspected various myocardial diseases (19 with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, 3 with cardiac amyloidosis, 3 with post myocarditis, 2 with dilated cardiomyopathy, 2 with cardiac sarcoidosis, 2 with cardiac tumor, 2 with previous myocardial infarction, 2 with hypertensive heart disease) underwent 1...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been shown to be effective for patients with chronic heart failure; however, the efficacy of CRT in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) has not been established. METHODS: We compared the outcomes of patients with CS who received CRT to patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). The incidence of major adverse cerebral and cardiovascular events (MACCE) in 11 consecutive CS patients (8 females; mean age, 66±8...

BACKGROUND: The histological diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is based on the presence of myocardial granulomas; however, the sensitivity of endomyocardial biopsy is relatively low. We investigated whether immunocompetent cells including dendritic cells (DC) and macrophages in nongranuloma sections of endomyocardial biopsy samples could be histopathological surrogates for CS diagnosis. METHODS AND RESULTS: The numbers of DC and macrophages were investigated in 95 consecutive CS patients and 50 patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy as controls...

BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a chronic multisystem disease of unknown etiology characterized by noncaseating granulomas that most often involves the lungs, but frequently has extrapulmonary manifestations, which might be difficult to treat in individual patients. OBJECTIVE: To review different disease manifestations, focusing on extrapulmonary organ systems, and to provide treatment options for refractory cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a literature search using Medline and Google Scholar for individual or combined keywords of "sarcoidosis, extrapulmonary, treatment, kidney, neurosarcoidosis, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, transplantation, musculoskeletal, rheumatology, arthritis, and skin"...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is associated with high morbidity and sudden death. The absence of specific symptoms and lack of diagnostic gold standard technique is challenging. New imaging methods could improve the diagnosis of CS. The aim of our study was to assess the role of left ventricular (LV) longitudinal and circumferential strain as estimated by 2D speckle-tracking imaging in patients with diagnosed sarcoidosis without cardiac involvement according to the current guidelines...

BACKGROUND: There is limited data on the effect of corticosteroid therapy in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS). We sought to examine the impact of early initiation of corticosteroid therapy, within a month of CS diagnosis, on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), ventricular arrhythmias (VAs), and atrioventricular (AV) block. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 30 CS patients from a large university sarcoidosis clinic. The effect of early initiation of corticosteroid therapy on LVEF was assessed by serial echocardiography, and on VAs and AV block was assessed by Holter monitoring and/or device interrogations...

Cardiac sarcoidosis is one of the uncommon causes of heart failure. Generally, it presents in the form of varying clinical manifestations ranging from asymptomatic to fatal arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia and complete heart block. It is difficult to make a diagnosis strictly based on clinical grounds. However, in the setting of extracardiac sarcoidosis and patients presenting with advanced heart block or ventricular arrhythmia, direct cardiac involvement should be suspected. The definitive diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis can be made from endomyocardial biopsy, but it is falling out of favor due to patchy myocardial involvement, considerable procedure-related risks, and advancement in additional imaging modalities...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of serial quantitative 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) to monitor the response of cardiac sarcoidosis to treatment. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 38 PET scan intervals (54 PET scans) were obtained in 16 patients with cardiac sarcoidosis who underwent serial FDG PET during treatment. FDG-avid lesions of the heart were interpreted quantitatively using 4 PET parameters: maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax), partial volume corrected mean standardized uptake value (SUVmean), partial volume corrected metabolic volume product (MVP), and global metabolic volume product (gMVP)...
