Diagnosing sarcoidosis is a challenging process. UCSF’s team of specialists are experts in diagnosing and treating this elusive chronic condition.
- Sarcoidosis is an immune disorder that causes granulomas in the lymph nodes. Early diagnosis is crucial, to minimize organ destruction and enhance long-term survival.
- Ninety percent of sarcoidosis patients have associated intrathoracic findings of pulmonary parenchymal disease or lymph node enlargement.
- Sarcoidosis may affect multiple organs, including the heart, eyes, nervous system and skin.
- Many other conditions can mimic the patterns of inflammation caused by sarcoidosis.
