Unusual manifestations of sarcoidosis reported in India include parotid and lacrimal gland enlargement, superior vena caval obstruction, cirrhosis of liver with portal vein obstruction, portal hypertension, breast lumps, sarcoid nephritis, transient paralysis of phrenic and recurrent laryngeal nerves (especially left), miliary lesions in lungs, gross clubbing, insignificant or massive pleural effusions (either unilateral or bilateral), sarcoidoma, nodular sarcoidosis and Heerfordt, Lofgren, sicca, Marie- Bamberger and Monge«SQ»s syndromes. Some of these features are however, not uncommon. The unusual features may cause diagnostic delay and inappropriate therapy.
