Extract

Sarcoidosis is systemic disorder of unknown cause, affecting multiple organs that is characterized by non-caseating granulomas. In the US, sarcoidosis occurs mostly in the third to fifth decades of life; and a lifetime risk in African Americans of 2.4% compared to 0.85% in Caucasians (Dumas, 2016). Lung involvement is most common and the major cause of death. When it comes to extra pulmonary involvement, specifically the GI tract, the liver and spleen are the most commonly affected sites. However, there has been one other case report of sarcoidosis with just abdominal lymphadenopathy without liver and splenic involvement.
