We present a case of hepatosplenic sarcoidosis. A 51-year-old Japanese male, who was diagnosed to have sarcoidosis 4 years previously, was presented to our hospital because of dry cough and anorexia with weight loss. He had tender hepatosplenomegaly. A dynamic abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed multiple small low-density areas in both liver and spleen, as well as in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The laparoscopic photographs showed many small whitish nodules surfacing on the liver and several tumorous nodules on the spleen. Multiple imaging modalities including dynamic CT and MRI are valuable for detecting focal hepatic and splenic lesions of sarcoidosis.
