Abstract

We report the first case of recurrent sarcoidosis manifested by clinical symptoms, radiographic abnormalities, and pathologic changes in a patient following sequential double allogeneic lung transplantation. A 40-year-old male patient underwent bilateral allogeneic lung transplantation for end-stage pulmonary sarcoidosis. Thirteen months posttransplantation, he developed fatigue, shortness of breath, and bilateral upper lobe pulmonary infiltrates. Transbronchial biopsy specimens revealed noncaseating granulomata. The patient's symptoms and radiographic abnormalities resolved with an increased dose of oral prednisone.
