Case of stage 0 pulmonary sarcoidosis pathologically diagnosed via transbronchial lung cryobiopsy.

A 45-year-old male was diagnosed with arrhythmia during a routine health examination. Findings from different modalities, such as echocardiography and radiography, were consistent with cardiac involvement in sarcoidosis. There was no ocular involvement or superficial lymph node enlargement. A chest computed tomography scan did not reveal any pulmonary lesions or bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy. To pathologically diagnose systemic sarcoidosis, transbronchial lung cryobiopsy was performed. Results showed pathological evidence of noncaseating epithelioid granulomas. Herein, we present a case in which sarcoidosis diagnosis was confirmed via transbronchial lung cryobiopsy despite the absence of respiratory lesions on computed tomography scan.
