Özet

Sarcoidosis is a chronic, multisystem inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology that is characterized by noncaseating granulomas. Although lung involvement is common in sarcoidosis, pleural involvement is rare. Pleural involvement may manifest as a pleural effusion, pneumothorax, pleural thickening and nodules, hydropneumothorax, hemothorax, or chylothorax. Here, we describe a case of sarcoidosis with pleural nodular thickening.
