Abstract. Sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome is a well-established syndrome where sarcoidosis is followed by the development of a lymphoproliferative disease such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Here we report two patients with NHL who developed sarcoidosis subsequent to the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disease. In both cases, chemotherapeutic treatment had already been initiated or was completed when sarcoidosis occurred. In these patients, sarcoidosis may have been triggered by immunologic… Expand
Two cases of sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome
TLDR
Two patients who developed Hodgkin’s disease and diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma subsequent to their diagnosis of sarcoidosis after latency periods of 6 years and 18 years respectively are reported. Expand
Sarcoidosis-Lymphoma Syndrome
TLDR
A case report of a patient with sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome is presented, and an anatomopathological study of lymphadenopathy is necessary to establish the diagnosis. Expand
Granulomatous reaction after chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease.
TLDR
A case with sarcoid like reaction developing after systemicchemotherapy for Hodgkin’s disease (HD) is reported and the possible definitions are discussed. Expand
Sarcoidosis Occurring After Lymphoma
TLDR
Sarcoidosis is a differential diagnosis to consider when lymphoma relapse is suspected on a CT-scan or 18FDG-PET/CT, emphasizing the necessity to rely on histological confirmation of lymph cancer relapse. Expand
Sarcoidosis lymphoma syndrome - the value of PET-CT in the diagnosis
TLDR
It is important to be aware of the risk of lymphoma in sarcoidosis and FDG-PET, used for adequate purpose, can help the diagnosis, report a 52-year-old patient who developed B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma subsequent to sarcoidsosis. Expand
Sarcoidosis and malignancy.
TLDR
Malignancy can be associated with the occurrence of sarcoid reactions that typically are restricted to the regional lymph nodes or the visceral organ of tumor origin; rarely, the Sarcoid reaction can also be observed in the skin or is only limited to the skin. Expand
Granulomatosis after autologous stem cell transplantation in nonHodgkin lymphoma – experience of single institution and a review of literature
TLDR
It was found that false positive lymph nodes were more common after allogeneic than after autologous transplantation, and post-treatment PET-CT positive lymph node should always be examined histologically prior to any further treatment decision to avoid unnecessary toxic procedures. Expand
The sarcoid-lymphoma syndrome.
TLDR
Patients diagnosed with sarcoidosis either during or after the treatment of lymphoma are presented, and the data surrounding the entity known as "sarcoid-lymphoma syndrome" is reviewed, to avoid misdiagnosis. Expand
Paradoxical development of a sarcoid-like reaction during successful chemotherapy for seminoma.
TLDR
The first case of a sarcoid-like reaction that developed paradoxically during successful chemotherapy for recurrent seminoma is reported, which resulted in complete remission of seminoma in a 36-year-old Japanese man four years after left orchiectomy. Expand
Sarcoidosis and lymphoma: case series and literature review.
TLDR
It is shown that there might be coincidence of two rare conditions and the importance of tissues sampling of lesions suspected to be a relapse of a former biopsy-proven disease, even in the presence of positive PET results. Expand

The sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome.
TLDR
A sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome appears to exist in which malignant lympho-proliferative disease develops at least 5.5 times more often than expected in middle-aged patients with chronic active sarcoIDosis, possibly as a consequence of the immunologic abnormalities observed in the latter disease. Expand
Sarcoidosis following chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease.
TLDR
With the incidence of sarcoidosis exceeding that of HD for the general population, the authors emphasize the importance of considering the presence of sarCOidosis in the differential diagnosis of patients who do not respond radiographically to HD chemotherapy. Expand
Solid tumors preceding or following sarcoidosis.
TLDR
An analysis of 23 such cases from the literature suggests that sarcoidosis preceding cancer appears to be of the chronic active variety and that lung and breast cancer may occur more often than expected after sarcoideosis. Expand
Epithelioid granulomas associated with Hodgkin's disease. Clinical correlations in 55 previously untreated patients
TLDR
Non‐caseating sarcoid‐like epithelioid granulomas associated with Hodgkin's disease have been found in 55 patients initially staged and treated at the Stanford University School of Medicine, and survival and relapse‐free survival curves are significantly different in favor of the granuloma group. Expand
Sarcoid reactions in malignant tumours.
TLDR
Tumour-related tissue reactions resulting in the formation of epithelioid-cell granulomas have been known for almost 70 years and may be a marker of an immunologically mediated antitumour response of macrophages activated by T-lymphocytes, and in Hodgkin's disease there is evidence that patients with sarcoid reactions have a better prognosis.

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
Sarcoidosis: historical perspective and immunopathogenesis (Part I).
TLDR
The term ‘lupus pernio’ shaped by Besnier is still used today to describe facial skin lesions of sarcoidosis patients, which are related to lupus erythematodous, an auto-immune disorder characterized by facial skin injuries. Expand
Immunologic abnormalities in sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Findings suggest that the lung is the site of an immune inflammatory response when involved in sarcoidosis, and many humoral abnormalities (for example, immune complexes) are absent in patients with resolved disease. Expand
