Abstract

We describe the case of a 66-year old woman with the extremely rare combination of sarcoidosis and amyloidosis (light chain) and the important role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging to differentiate between these 2 infiltrative diseases. Myocardial characterization with T1 mapping can improve disease detection, especially in overlap cases, and possibly obviate the need for cardiac biopsy. / Nous décrivons le cas d’une femme de 66 ans qui souffre d’une combinaison extrêmement rare de sarcoïdose et d’amyloïdose (à chaînes légères) et le rôle important de l’imagerie cardiovasculaire par résonance magnétique dans la distinction de ces deux maladies infiltrantes. La cartographie T1 du myocarde peut améliorer la détection de la maladie, particulièrement dans les cas de chevauchement, et éliminer la nécessité de faire une biopsie cardiaque.
