Reversal of torrential tricuspid regurgitation is rarely seen. We describe a case in which effective immunosuppression alongside conventional heart failure therapies lead to reversibility of torrential tricuspid regurgitation in a patient with cardiac sarcoidosis. We also discuss the diagnostic challenge in distinguishing cardiac sarcoidosis from other myocardial diseases in a patient presenting with biventricular failure.
