Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disorder. Although it usually presents with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy and lung infiltration, multiple organ systems may also be affected. Bone involvement is quite rare (5% to 10%) and mostly limited in small tubular bones of the hands and feet. In addition, it is usually occurred in patients with chronic course or known multisystem sarcoidosis and it is often asymptomatic . Here we report a hip localization. A 52-year-old woman consulted for acute bilateral coxopathy. Chest radiography objectified bilateral interstitial syndrome with mediastinal lymphadenopathy. The X-ray of the pelvis and both hips showed no abnormalities and CT scan revealed a moth-eaten osteolytic lesion of the left femoral head. It was associated with inflammatory syndrome and cholestasis. Liver biopsy revealed epithelioid and giant cell granulomas without caseous necrosis. The pathology specimens were interpreted as representing sarcoid....
