Abstract

The coincidence of testicular carcinoma and sarcoidosis can result in diagnostic errors and inappropriate treatment unless patients are appropriately investigated. We report 3 such cases; 1 in which sarcoidosis preceded the diagnosis, 1 of coincident diagnoses, and 1 in which the sarcoidosis was diagnosed after testicular carcinoma. We review the investigations that can be used to resolve diagnostic uncertainty and the evidence for an association between the 2 diseases.
