Sarcoidosis Versus Lymphoma?
KeywordsGranulomatous diseases, sarcoidosis, lymphoma
An association between lymphoma and sarcoidosis was first suggested in 1960. We report a case of sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome, which is a diagnostically challenging condition. We conclude that an associated lymphoma should be considered in all patients with suspected sarcoidosis, especially those who do not respond to treatment or who present with persistent haematological abnormalities. Splenomegaly should prompt splenectomy to rule out lymphoma if a less invasive approach has failed to confirm the diagnosis.
