Abstract

Sacroiliitis is a rare manifestation in patients with sarcoidosis and there have been several case reports of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) accompanying sarcoidosis. Recently, the development of sarcoidosis has been reported in AS patients treated with tumor necrosis factor blocker. We described a 27-year-old male patient with AS and histologically proven sarcoidosis who was treated with etanercept without aggravation of sarcoidosis.
