A Rare Presentation of Sarcoidosis in Which a Lady Presented With Massive Splenomegaly and Skin Manifestation Without Lung Involvement: A Case Report.


Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease with multiple system involvement. It is characterized by the presence of non-caseating granulomas in the involved organs. The most commonly affected organ in sarcoidosis is the pulmonary interstitium. However, extra-pulmonary involvement can be manifested in almost any other organ system. Less commonly, sarcoidosis can manifest with massive splenomegaly.
