Several studies have described an increased incidence of venous thromboembolism in inflammatory conditions such as sarcoidosis.
CASE REPORT: We report a case of a 27-year-old African-American man who developed sarcoidosis with pulmonary involvement after 4 years of unexplained thromboembolism.
CONCLUSIONS: This report discusses the relationship between sarcoidosis and venous thromboembolism. Our case raises questions about this relationship. Can sarcoidosis lead to an inflammatory and prothrombotic state prior to the development of other manifestations?
