Arch Intern Med. 1983;143(8):1603-1604. doi:10.1001/archinte.1983.00350080125027

• Sarcoidosis with involvement of the vermiform appendix is a rare clinical occurrence. We describe a young woman with sarcoidosis whose initial manifestations suggested acute appendicitis. Histologic examination of the appendix showed noncaseating epithelioid granulomas without acute inflammatory changes.
