Abstract

Tuberculosis and sarcoidosis share similar histopathological findings. An aetiological connection between these diseases has been discussed. We report a case of pulmonary sarcoidosis, which occurred shortly after an isoniazid (INH)-resistant spinal tuberculosis was diagnosed which was suspected to be a miliary tuberculosis. This report illustrates the need to sensitise clinicians to two possible important causes of lung parenchyma alterations under tuberculostatic therapy.
