Figure 13 (A and B): Sarcoidosis with pleural involvement. (A) Coronal multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) image (lung window) of a patient with sarcoidosis shows typical perilymphatic nodules along interlobar fissures and subpleural interstitium with upper lobe prodominance (black arrows). Note left sided pleural effusion (curved arrow) (B) Axial contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) image (mediastinal window) shows left-sided pleural effusion with mild pleural thickening and enhancement (dashed arrows). Pleural fluid analysis revealed low adenosine deaminase (ADA) level. Pleural biopsy was performed which showed non-necrotizing granuloma. The effusion subsequently resolved on treatment
