Abstract

We describe a patient with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy shown on a chest radiograph and supraclavicular lymphadenopathy, Biopsy of a supraclavicular lymph node showed non-caseating granulomas, A diagnosis of sarcoidosis was made and no treatment was given. One year later she complained of cervical and lumbar pain and decreasing strength of the right hand. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine showed multiple lesions within the vertebral bodies of six vertebrae, and thoracic computed tomography showed partial destruction of the first right rib. A biopsy of the second lumbar vertebra demonstrated non-caseating granulomas. Corticosteroid treatment was unsuccessfuland long-term remission of the symptoms was achieved with a weekly low dose of methotrexate.
