BACKGROUND In patients with sarcoidosis, sudden death is a leading cause of mortality, which may represent unrecognized cardiac involvement. Delayed-enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance (DE-CMR) can detect minute amounts of myocardial damage. We sought to compare DE-CMR with standard clinical evaluation for the identification of cardiac involvement. METHODS AND RESULTS Eighty-one consecutive patients with biopsy-proven extracardiac sarcoidosis were prospectively recruited for a… CONTINUE READING
