Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. The association of the cholestatic pattern usually seen in sarcoidosis, with biliary duct changes resembling primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is rare. 1 Liver transplantation permits the histological evaluation of the complete explanted liver, making the diagnosis more reliable. In conclusion we present our experience with two patients with sarcoidosis requiring liver transplantation, who presented with clinical and radiological findings characteristics of primary sclerosing cholangitis.
