Abstract

End-stage pulmonary disease due to sarcoidosis rarely leads to lung transplantation. Once a patient has undergone lung transplantation, sarcoidosis often recurs in the lung allograft. In this case report we show, for the first time, the utility of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in diagnosing the recurrence of sarcoidosis in the transplanted allograft.
