Abstract

We present a delayed diagnosis of sarcoidosis in an 11-year-old girl by demonstrating ultrasonographic imaging findings of granulomatous cervical and abdominal lymph node involvement. Pulmonary interstitial fibrosis in addition to multi-compartmental enlarged echogenic lymph nodes could be considered sarcoidosis. Punctate echogenic foci in the cervical lymph nodes should be considered in the differential diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
