Sarcoidosis is a chronic inflammatory disease with unknown cause characterized by non-caseating granuloma formations. It may present with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, skin lesions, the involvement of eye and symptoms on the locomotor system. FMF (Familial Mediterranean Fever) is an autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease, characterized by recurrent episodes of fever and polyserositis. Simultaneous occurrence of these diseases is rare. In this paper, we reported the coexistence of sarcoidosis with FMF.


La sarcoidosis es una enfermdad inflamatoria crónica de origen desconocido caracterizada por formaciones de granulomas no caseificantes. Puede manifestarse con linfadenopatía hiliar bilateral, lesiones cutáneas, afectación ocular y síntomas en el aparato locomotor. La FMF (fiebre mediterránea familiar) es una enfermedad inflamatoria autosómica recesiva que se caracteriza por episodios recurrentes de fiebre y poliserositis. La concurrencia simultánea de ambas patologías es poco frecuente. En este artículo se presenta la coexistencia de sarcoidosis con FMF.
