Platelet Count and Mean Platelet Volume: Supportive Markers in Differentiation of Tuberculosis and Sarcoidosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.011
Synopsis: 
Tuberculosis and sarcoidosis are two diseases showing histological and clinical similarities and the differential diagnosis of the two is still very challenging. In this study, platelet (PLT) count and mass platelet volume (MPV) were found to be supportive in the differentiation of tuberculosis and sarcoidosis.

Sarcoid Tattoo Granuloma and Ocular Sarcoidosis: The Great Masquerader

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.405

ABSTRACT

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease with both sight and life-threatening sequelae. It can be a diagnostic challenge as there is no definitive test. The IWOS has recommended guidelines to improve diagnostic certainty to improve early detection. The authors present a case of bilateral panuveitis and biopsy proven sarcoid tattoo granuloma. The roles of a multi-disciplinary team and early introduction of steroid-sparing agents are highlighted.
