Cardiac sarcoidosis masquerading as a metastatic tumor: the role of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography.
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.
