Nodular lung disease is a rare pulmonary manifestation of sarcoidosis and resembles metastatic neoplasm disease. Nodular sarcoidosis is rare, varying from 1.6% to 4% of patients with sarcoidosis. Radiographic nodules measure from 1 to 5 cm in diameter that typically consist of coalescent granulomas. There is limited data on this form of sarcoidosis and its presentation can mimic primary or metastatic pulmonary neoplasms. Nodular sarcoidosis has a favorable prognosis, and resolution can be seen with oral corticosteroids. Herein, we present such a case of nodular pulmonary sarcoidosis with a lung nodule measured up to 6 cm.
