ABSTRACT
Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic inflammatory disease characterized by noncaseating granulomatous inflammation of unknown origin. Although, renal involvement is rare, renal manifestations of sarcoidosis include abnormal calcium metabolism, nephrocalcinosis, nephrolithiasis, nephrotic syndrome and glomerulonephritis. We report a case of sarcoidosis presented with nephrotic syndrome and diagnosed as Ig A nephropathy.
