    What Causes Sarcoidosis? What Are The Symptoms Of Sarcoidosis? How Is Sarcoidosis Diagnosed? ... In Summary
    Sarcoidosis is a disease due to inflammation.
    The disease can attack any organ of the body in any location. The disease is characterized by the presence of granulomas, small areas of inflamed cells. They can be either inside the body or son the body's exterior, appearing as sores on the face or shins. But sarcoidosis is most frequently found in the lungs.
    Pulmonary sarcoidosis can cause loss of lung volume (the amount of air the lungs can hold) and abnormal lung stiffness. Granulomas can appear on the walls of the alveoli (small air sacs in the lungs) or on the walls of the bronchioles (breathing tubes in the lungs). They also appear in the lymph nodes in the chest, causing them to enlarge. WHAT CAUSES SARCOIDOSIS? No one yet knows what causes sarcoidosis. It is thought by most scientists to be a disorder of the immune system, where the body's natural defense system malfunctions. Some physicians believe that sarcoidosis may result from a respiratory infection caused by a virus. Others suspect that exposure to toxins or allergens in the environment is to blame. Researchers are looking for answers to this and many other questions about sarcoidosis.

    Brief Overview
    The Sarcoidosis Center is a non-profit corporation (501 (c)(3)) designed to provide information for patients and physicians regarding sarcoidosis. It is hoped that widespread exchange of information and international exposure will foster cooperation among similar groups. Through improved communication, closer ties can be established and a directory of physicians who care for sarcoidosis patients may also be developed and shared among groups. Assistance with establishing support groups in a structured fashion and information on how to deal with the crises as they occur can be disseminated. Although the majority of patients with sarcoidosis do quite well, those that do not may have devastating changes in lifestyle. It is the hope of the author of this web site that the information provided can help patients and their physicians deal more effectively with these problems. This page is continuously under development and therefore a number of sections are incomplete. Please excuse this inconvenience but we wish to provide information as soon as possible. We welcome comments which can be addressed to Norman T. Soskel, M.D. at the e-mail address

    SARCOIDOSIS Sarcoidosis is a chronic, multisystem disorder of an unknown etiology characterized by the accumulation of T-lymphocytes and mononuclear phagocytes, nonsecreting epithelial granulomas and derangements of the normal tissue architecture in affected organs. All parts of the body can be affected, but the organ most affected is the lung. Involvement of the skin, eye and lymph nodes is also common. A variety of infectious and noninfectious agents have been implicated, but there is no proof that any specific agent is responsible. However, available evidence is consistent with the concept that the disease result from an exaggerated cellular immune response (acquired, inherited or both) to a limited class of antigens or self antigens. Cases of sarcoid have been described in both sexes, almost all ages, races and geographic locations. Females appear to be slightly more susceptible than males. There is remarkable diversity of the prevalence of sarcoidosis among certain ethnic and racial groups. In the United States, the majority of patients are black 10:1 to 17:1. Blacks are often younger than whites with the disease. In Europe, however, it affects mostly whites with higher prevalence in Sweden and among Irish females. It is most common between the ages of 20-40, but it can occur in children and in the elderly. Although it is rare in children, the disease is most frequent between 9 to 15 years of age. A small cluster occurs in children under age 4 years with one half less than 1 year of age.

    Sarcoidosis is a fairly common disease with an annual incidence rate of approximately 11 per 100,000 in Caucasians and approximately 36 per 100,000 African Americans in the United States. It is most common in young adults between the ages of 20 and 40. The word "sarcoidosis" comes from the Greek word "sarkodes," meaning "fleshy," and the Greek suffix "-osis," meaning "condition." The "fleshy condition" refers to the skin lesions that often form on various parts of the body. Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease that can affect a variety of organs. Pulmonary involvement occurs in greater than 90% of patients and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality from this disease. Many organs can be involved, in fact, one of the most noticeable symptoms is the peculiar skin lesions, erythema nodusum, that develop on the lower legs. Sarcoidosis is a disease of unknown etiology characterized by granuloma formation in a variety of organs. Granulomas are collections of immune cells and disease that result from granulomatous disorders. There are a variety of granulomatous disorders that closely resemble sarcoidosis, including tuberculosis. The close resemblence to tuberuculosis has led to speculation that sarcoidosis is due to an infectious organism. It is the formation of these granulomas and the resulting tissue damage caused by the cells within these granulomas that cause the symptoms of sarcoidosis.

    A patient information handout on sarcoidosis, written by the authors of this article , is provided on page 2055. Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disorder of unknown etiology that most commonly affects adults between 20 and 40 years of age. Patients with sarcoidosis frequently present with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy and pulmonary infiltration, and often with ocular and skin lesions. The diagnosis is established when clinical and radiographic findings are supported by histologic evidence of non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas found on tissue biopsy. Diagnosis of sarcoidosis requires exclusion of other causes of granuloma formation. Sarcoidosis is also characterized by distinctive laboratory abnormalities, including hyperglobulinemia, an elevated serum angiotensin converting enzyme level, evidence of depressed cellular immunity manifested by cutaneous anergy and, occasionally, hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria. Glucocorticoids remain the mainstay of therapy when treatment is required, although other anti-inflammatory agents are being used increasingly often. S arcoidosis is a multisystemic disease of unknown etiology that may affect any organ or system in the body. It most commonly affects adults of both sexes between the ages of 20 and 40, but it may occur at any age. Two thirds of patients with sarcoidosis are less than 40 years old at the time of diagnosis. The prevalence of sarcoidosis is slightly higher in females than in males, but these rates vary widely in different countries and populations. Sarcoidosis was formerly thought to be 10 times more common in blacks than in whites, but more recent data indicates a 3.2:1 ratio.

    What It Is Who Gets It ... Links What It Is, What It Isn't Sarcoidosis is a relatively rare autoimmune disease that can affect the skin, lungs, heart, brain and nervous system, eyes, and other organs. Although the disease was first recognized about 100 years ago, little is known about what causes it and there is no cure. As an autoimmune disease, sarcoidosis is similar to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus in how it behaves and how it is treated. Depending on the severity, treatment may be needed to control what sarcoidosis does. Sarcoidosis can go dormant on its own or with treatment, and its symptoms often do not recur after the initial onset. In a small percentage of cases, sarcoidosis is chronic, requiring on-going treatment, with possible occurrence in other organ systems. Chronic sarcoidosis is apparently cyclic in its activity level, with flares of symptoms and more dormant periods lasting weeks or months. No markers have been identified as indicating how sarcoidosis is going to behave in any individual or how an individual with sarcoidosis is going to respond to treatment, although a physician experienced with sarcoidosis may be able to make a "good guess" based on his or her experience. Whether he or she is willing to voice that guess is another story entirely! Despite a century of research, little is known about sarcoidosis. Research has discovered what it is not. Among other things, it is not a cancer or tuberculosis or AIDS-related. It is not caused by pine pollen or other identifiable agents like pollution, airborne or otherwise. It is not progressive or contagious. You did not get it from someone else and you cannot give it to another person. As far as we know, nothing you did specifically caused your sarcoidosis.
