Isolated gastric sarcoidosis. Unique remnant of disseminated disease.

Author information

Department of Medicine, North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, New York.


Isolated granulomatous disease was identified in a gastrectomy specimen after a gastrointestinal hemorrhage in a 61-year-old white woman. She died postoperatively. No other areas of granulomatous tissue were identified at autopsy. Ten years previously, pulmonary sarcoidosis was proven on lung biopsy. Conceivable, other reported cases of unexplained "idiopathic" granulomatous disease of the stomach may represent residua of prior disseminated sarcoidosis.
