Abstract

The pathologist is frequently involved in the diagnostic approach to the patient with suspected sarcoidosis. Although the histologic diagnosis is generally not difficult, atypical and underrecognized features may occasionally occur and may result in diagnostic problems. The authors review the histology of pulmonary sarcoidosis, focusing particularly on these unusual problematic findings.
