Management of ventricular tachycardia (VT) storm in a patient with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a challenging medical emergency. We describe a patient with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) and an ICD who is admitted with VT storm. Management of VT was difficult due to resistance to multiple antiarrhythmic drugs. He responded to immunosuppressive therapy supporting active CS as the cause of his VT. This case suggests that CS may underlie some cases of refractory VT and that immunosuppressive therapy may be effective in controlling this arrhythmia.
