An association between sarcoidosis and lymphoproliferative diseases (LD), the sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome, has been previously described, and may be attributed to the underlying immunological abnormalities that occur during the sarcoidosis disease process.We report two patients who developed Hodgkin’s disease and diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) subsequent to their diagnosis of sarcoidosis after latency periods of 6 years and 18 years respectively. Both patients developed… 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-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
[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
Sarcoidosis and cutaneous lymphoma: What is the relationship?*
TLDR
A 30-year-old Caucasian woman with history of chronic active systemic sarcoidosis for 14 years, presented at the dermatology department complaining of recurrent ulcerative papules and nodules that had begun four years ago, and the diagnosis changed to ALK-primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma with lymph node involvement.

Cutaneous and systemic malignancies in patients with sarcoidosis: a close association.

TLDR
Physicians should be aware of the close association between sarcoidosis and systemic malignancies, especially skin cancers, so as to decrease the high morbidity and mortality associated with sarCOidosis. Expand
A patient presenting with generalised lympadenopathy – sarcoidosis, lymphoma or tuberculosis?
TLDR
A 62-year-old woman with an established diagnosis of sarcoidosis affecting the lymph nodes, who subsequently developed high-grade T cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is presented, highlighting that these conditions can co-exist. Expand
A Sixty-four Years Old Woman with Febrile Syndrome and Generalized Lymphadenopathy
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the potential risks of lymphoproliferative syndrome or other malignancy processes in patients with lymphadenopathy, even though a diagnosis of sarcoidosis seems reasonable. Expand
Mixed-type multicentric Castleman's disease developing during a 17-year follow-up of sarcoidosis.
TLDR
A case of MCD developing in a 78-year-old woman with a 17-year history of sarcoidosis is described, in which the administration of steroid-pulse therapy and prednisolone was ineffective in treating the MCD, although treatment with tocilizumab proved highly effective. Expand
Sarcoidosis and Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MGUS): A True Association or Just a Coincidence?
TLDR
A 79-year-old male patient who presented with dry mouth for 4 months and showed significant improvement with steroids and was discharged with close follow-up from nephrology and oncology is described. 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

Occurrence of sarcoidosis subsequent to chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: report of two cases
TLDR
Two patients with NHL who developed sarcoidosis subsequent to the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disease are reported, which may have been triggered by immunologic aberrations induced by antineoplastic therapy or as a consequence of an underlying immunologic disturbance associated with the lymphoma. Expand
Association between sarcoidosis and lymphoma revisited.
TLDR
The association between sarcoidosis and lymphoma is confirmed, suggesting that sarCOidosis may be a predisposing factor for the development of a lymphoid malignancy due to disturbance of the immune system. 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
The malignancy-sarcoidosis syndrome.
TLDR
There exists a syndrome of sarcoidosis following malignancy with or without chemotherapy, and there was no clinical or pathologic evidence of malignancies in the chest at the time of diagnosis. 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 and cancer revisited: a long-term follow-up study of 555 Danish sarcoidosis patients.
TLDR
The study could not confirm previous reports of an increased occurrence of malignant neoplasms in Danish sarcoidosis patients, but compared the results with the expected incidence in the Danish population, adjusted for sex, age and calendar time. Expand
Risk of malignant neoplasms in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis.
TLDR
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
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. Expand
Concurrent presentations of the sarcoidosis, tuberculosis and lymphoma in a single patient.
TLDR
Concurrent occurrence of the sarcoidosis, lymphoma and tuberculosis along with the confusing findings during the investigation for the establishing the diagnosis and management that represented a great challenge are presented. Expand
Increased risk for cancer following sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Sarcoidosis appears to be associated with a significantly increased risk for cancer in affected organs, and chronic inflammation is a putative mediator of this risk. Expand
