Parsimony or Poor Luck: Concurrent Birt-Hogg- Dubé Syndrome and Sarcoidosis
While sarcoidosis is notorious for myriad manifestations including cystic lung changes, we present a case with both Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD) and pulmonary sarcoidosis.

We present a case with confirmed BHD syndrome and concurrent granulomatous lung disease consistent with sarcoidosis.
