Abstract

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease whose etiology remains unknown. It is characterized by the formation of non-caseating granulomas and adenopathy, mainly in the pulmonary interstice. This is a systemic disease that may affect any organ or system and should be included in the differential diagnosis of infectious, neoplastic or autoimmune diseases as a correct diagnosis avoids unnecessary surgeries or administration of drugs. The authors report a case of pulmonary sarcoidosis with hepatic involvement in which the patient has developed cirrhosis and portal vein thrombosis.
