INTRODUCTION: Sarcoidosis is a multi-organ system disorder of unclear etiology, first described in 1899 as “Multiple benign sarcoid” for its resemblance to sarcoma, characterized by epithelioid giant cell clusters forming granulomas.Female preponderance across all racial ethnic backgrounds mostly between 30-50 years is noted.  Bone marrow involvement is extremely rare, therefore identification, diagnosis and treatment can be a challenge. We present a case of bone marrow sarcoidosis with pancytopenia & management with methotrexate.
