AbstractSarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease with polymorphic manifestations, of unknown etiology, that can affect any organ in the body, but most commonly the lungs [1,2,3]. Extrapulmonary involvement is common, can occur in association with or in the absence of intrathoracic disease, and all organs can be involved, but it is rare to find an isolated extrapulmonary disease (less than 10% of patients) [3,4]. On occasion, the presentation of sarcoidosis may be atypical.We report a case of systemic sarcoidosis, with particular clinical data: extrathoracic onset with subdiaphragmatic lymph nodes, hepatomegaly and splenomegaly.
