 Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology that mainly involves the lung, bilateral hillar lymph nodes, eyes and skin. Sometimes it involves the liver, spleen, heart and nerve system, but gastrointestinal involvement in sarcoidosis is rare. The stomach is the most common site of sarcoidosis when it does involve the gastrointestinal tracts.

 Gastric sarcoidosis is divided into the following categories : gastric ulcer type, linitis plastica or Menetrier's disease type, and polypoid lesion type.

 There are few reports of sarcoidosis involving the esophagus, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum.
