  • Transient Sarcoidosis

    Tendinous xanthomas, which are similar lesions found in extensor tendons such as the Achilles tendon, may also be present in these patients.[bobbybukamd.com] Sonographic findings include joint effusions, tenosynovitis, and subcutaneous inflammation. Patients may have elevated ESR and C reactive protein.[en.wikibooks.org] In addition to true arthritis, patients may also have tenosynovitis and periarticular swelling. If joint effusions are present, they are often noninflammatory.[rheumaknowledgy.com]
