Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease characterized by non-caseating granulomas that rarely involve the thyroid gland.

Here, we review the literature on this association, report two patients presenting with hyperthyroidism and histologically-proven sarcoidosis, and discuss related clinical, biochemical, pathological and genetic findings.
