We report a case of isolated cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) diagnosed using a multimodality imaging approach. A patient presented after an out-of-hospital, ventricular fibrillation–mediated cardiac arrest. The use of echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, and fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography enabled the diagnosis of isolated CS. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
- cardiac magnetic resonance
- heart failure
- positron-emission tomography
- ventricular fibrillation
