Recurrence of sarcoidosis in a cardiac allograft: control with augmented corticosteroids.

Author information

Oregon Cardiac Transplant Program, Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland 97201.


Sarcoidosis of the heart is an unusual but previously reported indication for heart transplantation. It is clear that sarcoidosis is a systemic disease, but in spite of this, recurrence in the cardiac allograft has not been previously noted. The case presented here is that of a 34-year-old male in whom cardiac sarcoidosis recurred in the allograft 6 months after heart transplantation.
