Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of young adults. Cardiac involvement is rarely diagnosed clinically. In most cases it presents with arrhythmias and conduction disorders. We report a case of sudden death of a young female, wherein sarcoidosis with prominent cardiac involvement was diagnosed at autopsy. The other organs involved were lung and liver. Cardiac sarcoidosis should be considered in young patients with unexplained conduction disorders.
