Abstract

Cardiac sarcoid remains a challenging diagnostic entity. Electrical abnormalities in sarcoid myocarditis range from heart blocks to lethal ventricular tachycardias. Sarcoid granulomas have predilection for left ventricular side and basal septum in cardiac involvement. We present a case of sarcoid myocarditis presenting as mass involving the entire right ventricular side of the interventricular septum.
