A 71-year-old woman with abnormal pulmonary shadows and multiple enlarged thoracic lymph nodes was diagnosed with stage IIB lung adenocarcinoma, pulmonary sarcoidosis, and sarcoidosis-associated lymphadenopathy after biopsies from multiple organ sites. She also had rapidly progressive renal dysfunction, microhematuria, and high myeloperoxidase anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (MPO-ANCA) concentrations. A renal biopsy revealed granulomatous tubulointerstitial nephritis and necrotizing glomerulonephritis with crescent formation. She was diagnosed with nephritis caused by both sarcoidosis and ANCA-associated vasculitis. Oral prednisolone was administered to treat her nephritis, resulting in improvement in both her renal dysfunction and her sarcoidosis-associated lymphadenopathy.
