What is Sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects one or more organs but most commonly affects the lungs and lymph glands. As a result of the inflammation, abnormal lumps or nodules (calledgranulomas) form in one or more organs of the body. These granulomas may change the normal structure and possibly the function of the affected organ(s). Many people clear up without any treatment within a few years. However some may have long term or severe disease. Some symptoms may be improved with the use of anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. In cases where the condition causes significant health problems steroids such as prednisone are indicated. Alternatively, medications such as methotrexate,chloroquine, or azathioprine may occasionally be used in an effort to decrease the side effects of steroids. The risk of death is between one and seven percent. There is a less than five percent chance of the disease returning in someone who has had it previously.
causes of sarcoidosis
- Infectious agents
- Respiratory tract: Sarcoidosis of the lung is primarily an interstitial lung disease in which the inflammatory process involves the alveoli, small bronchi and small blood vessels. In acute and subacute cases, physical examination usually reveals dry crackles.
- Skin: The most common lesions are erythema nodosum, plaques, maculopapular eruptions, subcutaneous nodules, and lupus pernio . Treatment is not required, since the lesions usually resolve spontaneously in two to four weeks. Although it may be disfiguring, cutaneous sarcoidosis rarely causes major problems. Sarcoidosis of the scalp presents with diffuse or patchy hair loss.
- Heart: The presentation of cardiac sarcoidosis can range from asymptomatic conduction abnormalities to fatal ventricular arrhythmia. Conduction abnormalities are the most common cardiac manifestations of sarcoidosis in humans and can include complete heart block.
- Nervous system: A small number of people with sarcoidosis develop problems related to the central nervous system when granulomas form in the brain and spinal cord. Inflammation in the facial nerves, for example, can cause facial paralysis.
- Eyes: Inflammation can affect almost any part of your eye and can eventually cause blindness. Rarely, sarcoidosis also can cause cataracts and glaucoma
- Your doctor will first perform a physical examination to:
- check for skin bumps or a rash
- look for swollen lymph nodes
- listen to your heart and lungs
- check for an enlarged liver or spleen
Based on the findings, your doctor may order additional diagnostic tests:
- A chest X-ray can be used to check for granulomas and swollen lymph nodes.
- A chest CT scan is an imaging test that takes cross-sectional pictures of your chest.
- A lung function test can help determine whether your lung capacity has become affected.
- A biopsy involves taking a sample of tissue that can be checked for granulomas.
