Parsimony or poor luck: Concurrent birt-hogg-dubé syndrome and sarcoidosis

Brooks Kuhn, Priyanka Teckchandani, Richart Harper

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


While sarcoidosis is notorious for myriad manifestations including cystic lung changes, we present a case with both Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD) and pulmonary sarcoidosis. BHD is a rare, autosomal dominant genetic disorder characterized by numerous thin-walled, irregular cysts, but lung function is typically normal otherwise. We present a case with confirmed BHD syndrome and concurrent granulomatous lung disease consistent with sarcoidosis.
