We describe herein a case of dilated cardiomyopathy. The diagnosis of myocardial sarcoid was suggested by abnormal findings on an MRI of the chest. This was subsequently confirmed by a histology of a subcutaneous nodule. MRI is well suited in imaging myocardial scarring associated with sarcoidosis. Its use should be considered where sarcoidosis is suspected. Early detection and intervention with steroids may improve function.
