Abstract provided by Publisher
Sarcoidosis is a multiorgan inflammatory disease that rarely involves the musculoskeletal system. A typical radiographic presentation is only noted with phalangeal lesions in the hands and feet, and other skeletal sites of sarcoidosis are a diagnostic imaging challenge. We describe two cases of patients with sarcoidosis in whom pathologic bone marrow lesions were diagnosed on MRI scans. The magnetic resonance findings were non-specific and metastatic lesions or multiple myeloma were suspected. The case analysis serves to point to limitations of imaging studies in diagnosing bone sarcoidosis and underline the importance of cooperation between the radiologist and the clinician. The role of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnostic algorithm for bone sarcoidosis should mostly focus on locating lesions, indicating biopsy sites and follow-up of abnormalities.
