Abstract

In patients with sarcoidosis, myocardial involvement is common and may be fatal. With extensive disease, the primary manifestations may include conduction abnormalities and arrhythmias, which may lead to sudden death. Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy may be the most accurate method to assess extent of myocardial involvement and response to therapy.
