Abstract

Hepatic involvement during sarcoidosis is common but rarely symptomatic. Budd-Chiari syndrome is an exceptional but potentially serious complication.

A case of 38-year-old woman was diagnosed with a Budd-Chiari syndrome complicating multisystemic sarcoidosis has been reported in present case study. The patient was treated with hydroxychloroquine and long-term corticosteroid therapy with favorable clinical and radiologic outcomes.

Although BCS is an exceptional complication of hepatic sarcoidosis, it should always considered. A Doppler ultrasound should be performed in front of any evocating sign to establish an early diagnosis.
