Although sarcoidosis and lung cancer are both frequently encountered conditions, their simultaneous occurrence in the same patient is unusual. In this report, we describe 4 cases of their concurrence and discuss the possible pathogenic mechanisms of their concurrent appearance. In particular, in 2 of the cases, both diseases had coexisted for a long period (more than 6 and 4 years, respectively), showing a surprisingly slow growth of cancers. Although the chest computed tomography showed hilar… Expand
Sarcoidosis and lung cancer.
Either causality or coincidence, lung cancer, a condition that can be observed in patients with sarcoidosis, should be considered in the differential diagnosis when suspicious findings of it are discovered. Expand
Association of carcinoid tumor and sarcoidosis.
The case of a 43-year-old male who was hospitalized due to hemoptysis, with a pulmonary mass in the right upper lobe (RUL) as well as hypermetabolic lymphadenopathies seen with PET-CT, is reported. Expand
Lung Cancer Associated with Sarcoidosis - A case report -
A case of lung cancer associated with sarcoidosis that developed in a 65-year-old woman who underwent surgery andPathologic findings showed that the mass was a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma and all of the enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes were granulomas without cancer metastasis. Expand
: Coexistence of Sarcoidosis and Lung Cancer
Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disorder of unknown origin which is characterized by noncaseating epithelioid cell granulomas with giant cells mainly in the lung. The average incidence is worldwide 16Expand
Association of Carcinoid Tumor and Sarcoidosis
A 43-year-old male who was hospitalized due to hemoptysis has a pulmonary mass in the right upper lobe (RUL) as well as hypermetabolic lymphadenopathies seen with PET-CT, and endobronchial biopsies were compatible with carcinoid tumor. Expand
May sarcoidal reaction and malignant features coexist in regional lymph nodes of non-small cell lung cancer patients?
It is reported on a case of stage IIIA pulmonary adenocarcinoma in which TBNA of a subcarinal node showed the presence of both neoplastic cells and non-necrotizing granulomas, indicating the absence of lymph node metastases. Expand
Review Article: Coexistence of Sarcoidosis and Lung Cancer
According to the published case reports, mostly squamous lung cell carcinoma was histologically found, followed by adenocarcinoma, indicating that the coexistence of sarcoidosis and lung cancer is very rare. Expand
Sarcoidosis Associated with Adenocarcinoma of the LungA Case Report-Corresponding
Sarcoidosis and malignant neoplasm are frequently encountered pulmonary diseases, but their combined existence in the same patient is rare. As sarcoidosis usually presents as mediastinalExpand
Malignancy and Granulomatosis: Causality or Coincidence? Narrative Systematic Review
In patients with malignancy, the common etiologies of granuloma formation are tumor related sarcoid reaction, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis and other granulomatous diseases. Often, the finding ofExpand
A case of sarcoidosis accompanying squamous cell carcinoma in the mandibular gingiva.
The patient was diagnosed as having sarcoidosis and serum angiotensin converting enzyme level was decreased to within the normal range by corticosteroid therapy (prednisolone 30 mg/day). Expand


Coexistence of sarcoidosis and malignant disease: causality or coincidence?
The association of sarcoidosis and malignant lymphoproliferative disease is so constant that the existence of a sar coidosis-lymphoma syndrome is suggested, in which the chronic active type of sarCOidosis appears to be responsible for an increased risk of malignant transformation of lymphoid cells.

The Incidence of Malignant Tumours in Patients with Respiratory Sarcoidosis
During the period 1962-71 a total of 2544 patients with respiratory sarcoidosis were reported to the Danish Institute of Clinical Epidemiology. Among them 48 patients developed a malignant tumour,Expand
Adenocarcinoma of the lung in association with chronic sarcoidosis.
Adenocarcinoma of the lung occurred three years after the diagnosis of pulmonary and cutaneous sarcoidosis and carcinoma, which may present diagnostic difficulties is rarely reported. Expand
Squamous cell carcinoma associated with sarcoidosis in the lung.
A male patient, operated for squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, in whom sarcoidosis was discovered in the resected lung specimen, is reported. The increased association of sarcoidosis along withExpand

The significance of sarcoid-like lesions in association with malignant disease and in the glands draining the malignant areas is discussed, with reference to similar changes observed in associationwith chronic inflammatory and granulomatous lesions. Expand
A Report of Two Cases of Sarcoidosis with Bronchial Carcinoma
A confident diagnosis of systemic sarcoidosis with pulmonary and cutaneous manifestations was made in John C., aged 52, an industrial engineer, who was admitted on November 19, 1951, to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. Expand
Risk of malignant neoplasms in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis.
This study does not support the theory of an association between sarcoidosis and malignancy, and the main reason other studies have shown such an association is most likely to have been due to selection bias and misclassification. Expand
Excess death of lung cancer among sarcoidosis patients.
It is probably that sarcoidosis is a risk factor of lung cancer, though the observed number of leukemia was too small to conclude how high the cancer risk is among sarCOidosis patients. Expand
Sarcoidosis and bronchial carcinoma: description of a case.
Summary A case of coincidental sarcoidosis and bronchial carcinoma is described and discussed.
Alveolar septa, especially in both lower lobes of the lungs were thickened diffusely with fibrosis, edema, and inflammatory cell infiltration, and alveolar cavities contained hyaline membrane and large mononuclear cells. Expand
