Overview

abstract

  • A 34-year-old African-American female diagnosed earlier with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, uveitis, and pulmonary nodules, developed a subclavian artery aneurysm, and generalized annular osteosclerotic lesions with disabling arthralgias. Biopsies from bone and lymph node revealed non-caseating granulomas and no evidence of malignancy or infection, confirming the clinical impression of sarcoidosis.
