Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease with multiorgan involvement.

We report the case of a 13-year-old boy presenting with severe arterial hypertension and acute renal failure caused by an isolated sarcoid granulomatous interstitial nephritis (GIN). Other known causes of GIN, eg, drug intake or fungal or mycobacterial infection… CONTINUE READING
