Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic granulomatous disease, potentially affecting any organ system of the body. Calcium metabolism disturbances occur in up to 20% of patients, of which hypercalciuria and asymptomatic hypercalcemia are most common. Ocular sarcoid typically presents with anterior chamber manifestations such as uveitis, iritis, and iridocyclitis, but can involve posterior chamber as well. We describe herein a unique presentation of sarcoidosis with retinal detachment and symptomatic hypercalcemia as its first manifestation. Prompt therapy with steroids is indicated in these cases, and an immediate ophthalmology referral cannot be overemphasized.
