Annotation:  Possibilities of modern medicine have helped collected significant scientific and practical material for a number of disseminated and interstitial lung diseases. Wide introduction in practice of less traumatic methods of morphological verification made diagnostics with high- precision. Knowledge of sarcoidosis allow for a systematic analysis of the epidemiology, clinical course, and character of organs lesion and the effectiveness of the treatment. The underlying autoimmune inflammation leads to the formation of noncaseating epithelioid-cell granulomas. This disease can affect any organs, but most commonly sarcoid granulomas are found in the intrathoracic lymph nodes and lung tissue. The analysis of its atypical localization, in particular of isolated lesions of the pleura, which in the literature are rarely mentioned, have practice interest. We present a case of the sarcoid isolated pleural effusion of a 31-year-old patient that is atypical for this disease.
