Abstract

Childhood sarcoidosis is a rare disease with multisystemic organ involvement. A wide spectrum of vasculitides, including large vessel involvement, have been reported in childhood sarcoidosis. We describe a 7-year-old boy with childhood sarcoidosis who presented with prolonged fever, iritis, and abdominal aortic aneurysm. He underwent successful surgical repair of the abdominal aortic aneurysm and followup for 12 months was uneventful. This is the first report of abdominal aortic aneurysm complicating childhood sarcoidosis.
