Sarcoidosis is a multi-system disorder of unknown aetiology characterised by non-caseating granulomatous inflammation with varying presentation and prognosis. Bone involvement is uncommon and vertebral involvement is rare. We report a case of vertebral osseous sarcoidosis which presented with pulmonary symptoms mimicking tuberculosis and later developed vertebral involvement despite administration of oral corticosteroids.
