Using hybridized [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography with cardiac magnetic resonance, we identify active myocardial inflammation and demonstrate its relationship with late gadolinium enhancement, in Fabry disease. We demonstrate that late gadolinium enhancement represents, at least in part, active myocardial inflammation and identify an early inflammatory phenotype that may represent a therapeutic window before irreversible tissue injury and adaptation occur. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
