Title

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

We present an unusual case of biopsy-proven myocardial sarcoidosis in which the transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiographic findings suggested metastatic tumor involvement of the myocardium and pericardium. The pathologic, clinical, and echocardiographic features of cardiac sarcoidosis are reviewed, with emphasis on the role of echocardiography.
