Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects mostly the lungs and lymph glands. Renal involvement is rare and especially vasculitis. We report a case who presented an acute kidney failure and had sarcoidosis with vasculitis and nodular splenic involvement. A 35-year-old woman presenting a Lofgren syndrome was hospitalized for acute renal failure with cervical lymphadenopathy without other clinical findings. Laboratory data disclosed elevated angiotensin converting enzyme serum level. Abdominal ultrasound showed a multinodular spleen...

A 53-year-old female was admitted to hospital, with acute elevation of SCr and hypercalcemia, on a 5-year history of chronic interstitial nephritis and stage III chronic kidney disease (CKD). Extensive workup failed to yield a definitive diagnosis concerning the cause of the disorder. Intense uptake of (18)F-FDG in the spleen and liver was detected by PET/CT imaging with negative angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in serum. The spleen and the hypermetabolism nodules of the liver were resected for histopathologic examination and turned out to be noncaseating granulomas, likely sarcoidosis...

RATIONALE: The etiology of sarcoidosis is unknown, but microbial agents are suspected as triggers. OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify bacterial, fungal or viral lineages in specimens from sarcoidosis patients enriched relative to controls using metagenomic DNA sequencing. Since DNA from environmental contamination contributes disproportionately to samples with low authentic microbial content, we developed improved methods for filtering environmental contamination...

RATIONALE: F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET/CT) has an important role in the diagnosis of various malignancies. However, F-18 FDG can also exhibit intense accumulation in tissues in inflammatory conditions such as active tuberculosis (TB) and sarcoidosis. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of a 52-year-old female with irritable cough. CT showed a lung mass with multiple bilateral lung nodules, and sarcoidosis was suspected...

A 35-year-old woman with biopsy-proven recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma in the neck lymph nodes received salvage chemotherapy of brentuximab/insulin growth factor-methotrexate. Although the patient continued doing well clinically with no constitutional symptoms or significant laboratory abnormalities following the second recurrence, subsequent FDG PET CT examinations over the next 2 years revealed multiple new FDG-avid foci including lymph nodes above/below the diaphragm, liver, spleen, lungs, and bone. An alternate diagnosis of chemotherapy-induced sarcoidosis was suggested and confirmed on both bone marrow and right inguinal node biopsy...

BACKGROUND: Kveim-reagent (Kv) skin testing was a historical method of diagnosing sarcoidosis. Intradermal injection of treated sarcoidosis spleen tissue resulted in a granuloma response at injection site by 4-6 weeks. Previous work indicates proteins as the possible trigger of this reaction. We aimed to identify Kv-specific proteins and characterise the ex vivo response of Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) from sarcoidosis, tuberculosis and healthy control patients when stimulated with both Kv and selected Kv-specific proteins...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Despite the availability of novel therapeutic approaches, TB is considered as one of the leading causes of death due to infectious diseases worldwide. Alveolar macrophages are the first line of defense against M. tuberculosis; they ingest and sequester the bacilli within granulomatous structures. Control and resolution of the infection requires activated T lymphocytes as well as Th1 cytokines. There are two forms of TB: active TB and latent TB...

INTRODUCTION: Neurosarcoidosis accounts for approximately 5% of the sarcoidosis, which develops exclusively in the nervous system and is always difficult to diagnose. We describe a rare case of isolated neurosarcoidosis mimicking as multifocal meningiomas. A 27-year-old male was admitted to our hospital with a history of unconsciousness and convulsion 1 month ago, which was suspected as a seizure. The results showed no abnormalities in complete blood count; serum electrolytes; erythrocyte sedimentation rate and ultrasonography of the liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney and parotid gland, and so on...

BACKGROUND: A sarcoid reaction is a phenomenon characterized by histologically proven granulomatous lesions without evidence of sarcoidosis. This pathology is a benign tumor itself, but several reports have described sarcoid reactions accompanying malignant tumors. Sarcoid reactions occur in various cancers, such as skin, lung, ovary, stomach, and breast cancers. However, only a few published reports have described sarcoid reactions in patients with colorectal cancer. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic sigmoidectomy for sigmoid colon cancer...

We report on a 72-year-old male patient who developed sarcoidosis of the mediastinal lymph nodes, the liver, and the prostate 11 years ago. Seven years later, he underwent transurethral resection of the prostate by laser due to hematuria. Pathology of the resected chips showed a 'granulomatous prostatitis with epitheloid cells'. Malignancy was histologically excluded at that time. Four years later, he was diagnosed with an undifferentiated prostate carcinoma, with a Gleason score of 5 + 4 = 9. After initiation of antihormonal therapy, he underwent radical prostatectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy, which revealed a pT3b pN1 carcinoma with infiltrated resection margins...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous tuberculosis (CT) is rare in industrialized countries. Given the clinicopathological polymorphism and the difficulty of isolating the pathogen, diagnosis can be difficult. The condition may be associated with other known locations of the disease or in rare cases, it may be a tell-tale sign, as in our case, in which leg ulcers revealed paucisymptomatic disseminated tuberculosis. OBSERVATION: A 67-year-old man was referred for rapidly extensive ulcers of the right leg contiguous to debilitating arthritis of the knee of unknown aetiology for 18 months...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease of unknown origin characterized by the formation of non-caseating granulomas. Thoracic involvement is the most common presentation; however, sarcoidosis can involve almost any other organ. To the best of our knowledge there have been only 10 cases of splenic sarcoidosis reported in the English literature, with no reports of sarcoidosis of an accessory spleen. The present study reports a case of isolated sarcoidosis of an accessory spleen in the greater omentum, which was identified postoperatively in a 44-year-old female...

UNLABELLED: The aim of this manuscript is to describe radiological findings of extra-pulmonary sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis is an immune-mediated systemic disease of unknown origin, characterized by non-caseating epitheliod granulomas. Ninety percent of patients show granulomas located in the lungs or in the related lymph nodes. However, lesions can affect any organ. Typical imaging features of liver and spleen sarcoidosis include visceromegaly, with multiple nodules hypodense on CT images and hypointense on T2-weighted MRI acquisitions...

Glucocorticoids have strong regulatory actions on the immune system and act as potent therapeutic compounds for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. We previously reported that the long noncoding RNA growth arrest-specific 5 (Gas5), which accumulates inside the cells in response to cellular starvation/growth arrest, functions as a potent repressor of the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) through its RNA "glucocorticoid response element (GRE)". To evaluate potential roles of Gas5 in immune-related disorders, we examined Gas5 RNA levels in various autoimmune, inflammatory, and infectious diseases using the microarray data available in the Gene Expression Omnibus...

Sarcoidosis is a rare systemic disease characterized by noncaseating granulomas in affected organs. With > 90 % of all cases lung involvement is the most frequent site of manifestation of sarcoidosis, nevertheless multiple other organs can be affected. Extrapulmonary manifestations are lymph nodes, skin, nervous system, heart, eyes, bone marrow, spleen or gastrointestinal tract including liver and pancreas. Involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is rare, it can affect the whole intestine and is most frequently found in the stomach...

OBJECTIVES: Sarcoidosis is a multisystem, granulomatous inflammatory disease affecting both pediatric and adult patients. So far in children, very few radiological descriptions of abdominal sarcoidosis manifestations have been reported. The present study describes the frequency and the appearance of abdominal radiologic manifestations in pediatric patients with histologically proven sarcoidosis. METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively all of the radiological examinations of 22 patients ages 1 to 15 years at diagnosis with proven sarcoidosis evaluated in a university pediatric hospital between 1994 and 2014...

An asymptomatic 40-year-old woman with a first-degree atrioventricular block presented a right atrial mass in transthoracic echocardiograms. Transesophageal echocardiograms showed abnormally thickened tissue on the interatrial septum, which extended around the aortic annulus. Multimodality examinations demonstrated lesions in the heart, lungs, liver, and spleen, suggesting sarcoidosis. She was diagnosed with cardiac sarcoidosis after we detected granulomas in a lung specimen. A right atrial mass shrunk following steroid therapy...

Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory condition in which noncaseating epithelioid cell granulomas appear within one or several body sites. Sarcoid reaction (also referred to as sarcoidal or sarcoid-like reaction) occurs in patients who do not fulfill the diagnostic criteria for systemic sarcoidosis but present with similar clinical and histological features. As sarcoma-associated sarcoid reactions are rare, we describe the features of sarcoid reaction that developed in a man with liposarcoma and summarize reports of other oncology patients with sarcoma-associated sarcoid reactions...
