A middle-aged woman who received heart transplantation for end-stage sarcoid cardiomyopathy developed recurrent cardiac sarcoidosis in the donor heart. She presented 5 years post-transplantation with heart block and systolic dysfunction, without extracardiac involvement. Her disease was unresponsive to corticosteroids. Routine functional imaging may help identify such recurrences.
