Although sarcoidosis frequently involves bone, it rarely presents as isolated osseous disease. We present a case in which sarcoidosis is limited to the sacrum and pelvis, a case that underscores the potential importance of both magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and bone marrow biopsy in establishing the diagnosis. Additionally, we report the interval resolution of bony disease by MRI following glucocorticoid treatment.
