Interstitial pneumonitis in sarcoidosis is rare. When present, it is confined to areas of active granuloma formation. We report finding widespread interstitial pneumonitis and fibrosis in a patient with sarcoidosis. Due to the focal sampling of pulmonary tissue by transbronchial biopsy, a finding of interstitial pneumonitis does not exclude a diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
