Sarcoidosis With Involvement of the Appendix

Sarcoidosis With Involvement of the Appendix Abstract • Sarcoidosis with involvement of the vermiform appendix is a rare clinical occurrence. We describe a young woman with sarcoidosis whose initial manifestations suggested acute appendicitis. Histologic examination of the appendix showed noncaseating epithelioid granulomas without acute inflammatory changes. (Arch Intern Med 1983;143:1603-1604) References 1.
