Abstract

Cardiac sarcoidosis is a protean disease, capable of causing nearly any cardiac abnormality. Electrical abnormalities including heart block and ventricular tachyarrhythmias are some of the most feared manifestations of cardiac sarcoidosis. Despite increasing awareness, cardiac sarcoidosis remains underdiagnosed in clinical practice, and as a result, many patients do not receive potentially disease-altering immunosuppressant therapy. In this review, we discuss cardiac sarcoidosis and its management, focusing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to arrhythmias in cardiac sarcoidosis.
