Abstract

Sarcoidosis, considered to be an immunological disorder by many experts, can present either as a pulmonary subtype or as an extra-pulmonary subtype, with the former being more common in clinical practice. Common extra-pulmonary sites include lymph nodes, liver, spleen, heart and skin, in decreasing order of frequency. Presence of rare features in a patient with sarcoidosis can delay the diagnosis, and hence, the treatment as well. This case report highlights a rare presentation of a patient with pulmonary and extra-pulmonary (involving lymph nodes, spleen and musculoskeletal system) sarcoidosis.
