Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic granulomatous disease that affects individuals worldwide. The lungs are most commonly involved but any organ can be involved. It has variable manifestations and clinical course. Diagnosis of sarcoidosis is based on clinicopathologic findings and the exclusion of other causes of granulomatous disease. Its hallmark is the formation of granulomas in affected organs. Immunosuppressive therapy is the cornerstone of the management of sarcoidosis and is indicated when there is evidence of symptomatic or progressive disease or when critical organs (ocular, cardiac, nervous system) are involved.
