[Cardiac sarcoidosis revealed by ventricular tachycardia].


Cardiac sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown etiology, that is more seen in younger adults. The prognosis of myocardial sarcoidosis is poor and depends on arrhythmia, conduction disorders. We report the case of 35 years old woman with cardiac sarcoidosis and pulmonary involvement who presented acutely with sustained ventricular tachycardia well tolerated. She made a good recovery after steroid therapy and administration of antiarrhythmic agent.
