Abstract

Ophthalmologic examination of a 31-year-old black man presenting with an intractable gastric ulcer revealed small conjunctival nodules in the lower cul-desac that were sarcoid granulomas by microscopy. Previous endoscopic examination had revealed polyps in the gastric antrum, and a biopsy and microscopic examination had revealed granulomatous lesions, but a definite diagnosis could not be made until the ophthalmoscopic examination.
