516 Possible Causes for Hepatic Sarcoidosis

  • Sarcoidosis

    Recent findings Only 5–30% of patients with hepatic sarcoidosis display symptoms.[oadoi.org] Abstract Purpose of review Surveillance of hepatic involvement in sarcoidosis has not been standardized.[oadoi.org] Therefore, management of hepatic involvement is a clinical challenge. This review analyses published data on the pharmacological treatment of hepatic sarcoidosis.[oadoi.org]

  • Hepatic Sarcoidosis

    Although hepatic granulomas occur in 50-65% of patients with systemic sarcoidosis, isolated liver sarcoidosis is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While pulmonary sarcoidosis is most frequently observed, up to 70% of sarcoidosis patients present with non-caseating granulomas in hepatic tissues.[symptoma.com] We describe six cases of hepatic sarcoidosis. Clinical presentation was with weight loss, hepatomegaly and abnormal liver function tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    Patients with hepatic sarcoidosis rarely require orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BUN, creatinine, and liver function test results may be elevated in renal and hepatic sarcoidosis. Total protein may be elevated because of hypergammaglobulinemia.[merckmanuals.com] However, clinically significant cardiac involvement is rare in asymptomatic patients with normal electrocardiography findings. 13 Hepatic sarcoidosis is relatively common,[consultant360.com]
