Judging from the literature, it would appear that fever is not a significant feature of sarcoidosis except in cases with erythema nodosum or uveoparotitis. Indeed, no mention is made of this symptom in two comprehensive reviews of the subject (1, 2), and in most other reports, while fever is listed as one manifestation of the disease in from 3 to 28% of cases, the authors either omit any comment or imply that it is low grade in character (3-9). Only a few authors have pointed out that the fever may attain high levels or persist for long periods of time
