Abstract

Sarcoidosis, a systemic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, can affect any site in the body. A bone lesion was unexpectedly detected by fluorodeoxyglucose position emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) in a patient with multiorgan sarcoidosis. FDG PET/CT should be considered for the detection of clinically silent lesions of sarcoidosis.
