Symptoms of early onset sarcoidosis characterized by skin eruptions, arthritis, and uveitis mimic those of systemic type juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). We report 2 Japanese patients with early onset sarcoidosis, both of whom were initially diagnosed and treated as having JRA. Intermittent fever and synovial swelling may mask sarcoidosis in children less than 4 years old.
