Abstract

Sarcoidosis Sarcoidosis is a lung disease of unknown cause characterized by noncaseating granulomas; the heart and nervous system may also be involved. It is often misdiagnosed; tissue biopsy is needed for a definitive diagnosis. Glucocorticoids are recommended as initial treatment, when needed, but not for long-term care.
