Summary: Sarcoidosis is a systemic and immunologic disease of unknown etiology, characterized by the presence of noncaseating granulomas. Any tissue can be affected, but the lung is the most frequently compromised organ, followed by lymph nodes, skin, eyes, musculoskeletal and nervous system. Usually it has an acute or subacute course that heals itself, but it may also have a chronic and progressive course, causing serious consequences. Diagnosis is based on the combination of clinical, radiological and histological studies, along with the exclusion of other granulomatosus diseases. Löfgren´s Syndrome is an acute presentation of sarcoidosis, characterized by the presence of arthritis, arthralgia erythema nodosum and lymphadenopathy. We present thecase of a young male in the Calderon Guardia Hospital, San José Costa Rica
