Although it is nearly fifty years since Schaumann (1) first brought attention to systemic involvement in sarcoidosis, the etiology of this disease has yet to be established, and yearly there are new reports of its varied manifestations. The majority of cases of renal impairment in sarcoidosis are attributed to associated hypercalcemia, hypercalcuria, and nephrocalcinosis (2-4). However, in 1955 Berger and Relman (5) reported a patient with generalized sarcoidosis and renal impairment due to sarcoid infiltration without nephrocalcinosis. This paper concerns a similar patient proved to have renal involvement by sarcoid infiltration of the kidneys.
