Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease of unknown origin, with pulmonary findings in more than 90% of patients. Extrapulmonary involvement is common and all organs can be involved (especially lymph nodes, eyes, joints, and central nervous system) but it is rare to find an isolated extrapulmonary disease (<10% of patients). Granulomatous inflammation of the spleen and the liver is common in patients with systemic sarcoidosis while hepatosplenomegaly is unusual and splenic involvement rare. We are describing a rare case of abdominal sarcoidosis presenting with the hypercalcemic crisis but no pulmonary involvement.
