Özet

Lofgren's syndrome is an acute clinical form of sarcoidosis that is first described by Sven Lofgren as bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy together with Erythema Nodosum (EN) and accompanying arthritis/arthralgia. This syndrome has some differences in terms of treatment, prognosis and recurrence compared to sarcoidosis. In this report, we describe a 70 years old lady who admitted with multiple erythematous lesions and arthralgia of both lower extremities and she was diagnosed as Lofgren's syndrome via mediastinoscopy.
