A Case of Cardiac Sarcoidosis with Left Ventricular Dysfunction Which Formed Left Ventricular Thrombus after Administration of Steroid

      The patient was a 75 years old male who had been followed as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy by echocardiogram findings without inspection. In his echocardiogram findings, left ventricular contraction had been gradually impaired with left ventricular septal wall thinning. His inspection was done to examine the causes of these changes. According to his examinations, he was diagnosed as cardiac sarcoidosis. He had been administered predonisolone 30 mg/day for one month. After this course, his echocardiogram showed left ventricular thrombus,24*17 mm. This structure was diminished after anticoagulant therapy without complications. In our presentation, we will discuss about the pathologies of left ventricular thrombus formation in cardiac sacoidosis after administration of steroid. It is important to check left ventricular thrombus formation carefully after administration of steroid for cardiac sarcoidosis with left ventricular dysfunction.
