Abstract Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause that commonly involves the spleen. Sarcoid can produce either homogeneous splenomegaly or multiple splenic nodules. Although other organ system involvement usually occurs, this is not invariable. Herein, we report on the clinical, histological, and radiological features-including sonography and MRI-of an isolated splenic sarcoidosis that mimicked neoplastic disease in a 37-year-old female. Knowledge of this atypical sonographic presentation may prevent unnecessary splenectomy. Copyright © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company.
