A pulmonary sarcoidosis manifesting as a rare atypical pattern and distribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A unique case of atypical pulmonary sarcoidosis in a 62-year-old man complaining of dyspnea is presented. Chest CT scan showed an unusual pattern and distribution of pulmonary sarcoidosis manifesting mainly as reticular densities, interlobular septal thickening, and ground-glass opacities, in the subpleural and lower lung predominancy. However, a surgical lung biopsy revealed classical findings of sarcoidosis. Knowledge of this atypical pulmonary involvement may improve understanding sarcoidosis as the great masquerader.
