Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia was diagnosed in 2000 in this 44-year-old male patient with a history of syncope. An internal defibrillator was implanted. Six years later the patient was readmitted with severe heart failure, and cardiac sarcoidosis was diagnosed by myocardial biopsy. Response to a course of glucorticoids was favourable. We herein review diagnostic strategies and therapeutic options in this rare disorder.
