We here report a 5-year-old boy who presented with cough and bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy with a family history of sarcoidosis. The laboratory investigations did not confirm this diagnosis. The child was serologically proven to have Chlamydia pneumoniae infection. He responded well to a course of erythromycin resulting in complete resolution of his symptoms and the presenting radiographic findings on his initial chest X-ray. Pediatr.
