Making the Diagnosis of Cardiac Sarcoidosis in a Patient with Progressive Fatigue

Case Presentation - June 2010

Andrew N. Rassi, MD

A previously healthy 56 year old Caucasian male presents to clinic for evaluation of progressive decrease in exercise tolerance over the previous four months. At baseline, he is very active. He says that he is still able to play hockey, swim, and walk three miles per day but is concerned that he can’t compete at the same level and is getting short of breath more easily – “I need a line change in hockey sooner than I used to.”

Past Medical History

He had previously completed treatment with warfarin for a DVT/PE three years prior to presentation.
