A patient initially presented with sarcoidosis in combination with myositis of sarcoid origin and Raynaud's phenomenon. During the course of his disease, he additionally developed scleroderma. Bronchoalveolar lavage, performed because of increase of interstitial markings in the presence of enlarged hilar nodes, showed an increased percentage of granulocytes and a low CD4 to CDS ratio of lymphocytes, suggesting a change to scleroderma lung disease.
