Scar-mediated ventricular tachycardia (VT) commonly results from ischemic heart disease. We present a case of recurrent VT, which was initially attributed to ischemic disease; however, the scar location pointed to an alternate pathology. This case demonstrates the utility of multimodality imaging in diagnosing sarcoidosis as a cause of VT. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
