Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease of unknown aetiology characterised by noncaseating granulomatous inflammation with varying presentation and prognosis. Osseous disease reported in 1-13% of cases commonly involves hands and feet; however, vertebral sarcoidosis is rare. This report describes radiologic, CT, MRI and radionuclide imaging findings of vertebral involvement of a case with sarcoidosis.
