Abstract

The diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis can be difficult to establish. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman in whom a contrast-enhanced helical computed tomographic examination of the thorax demonstrated an interventricular septal mass. Subsequent open biopsy confirmed cardiac sarcoidosis.
