Core Tip Ultrasound (US) is useful to evaluate patients with suspected abdominal sarcoidosis (SA), showing some findings such as organomegaly, hypoechoic lesions and adenopathy. While the diagnosis of abdominal SA is more predictable in the case of involvement of other organs (e.g. lungs) the problem is more complex in the case of isolated abdominal SA. The recent use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound and endoscopic ultrasound elastography has provided additional information about the enhancement patterns and tissue rigidity in abdominal SA. Our objective was to critically review the role of US in abdominal SA, reporting characteristic findings and limitations of current evidence and discussing future perspectives of study.
