Sarcoidosis Vasc Diffuse Lung Dis. 2013 Nov 25;30(3):212-6.


Sarcoidosis and ulcerative colitis is a rare association. We report a case of this association and describe its clinical, radiological and functional characteristics based on a review of the literature. This association must be recognized by the physician and must be clearly distinguished from a systemic site of ulcerative colitis or drug-related pneumonitis.
