Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease characterized by the development and growth of tiny lumps of cells called granulomas. If these tiny granulomas grow and clump together in an organ, they can affect how the organ works, leading to the symptoms of sarcoidosis. The granulomas can be found in almost any part of the body, but occur more commonly in the lungs, lymph nodes, eyes, skin, and liver. Although no one is sure what causes sarcoidosis, it is thought by most scientists to be a disorder of the immune system responding to an unknown substance, most likely something inhaled from the air. The course of the disease varies from person to person, but most people do very well with little or only modest treatment. It often goes away on its own, but in some people symptoms of sarcoidosis may last a lifetime. For those who need treatment, anti-inflammatory medications and immunosuppressants can help. In half of cases, sarcoidosis goes away on its own. In a few cases, however, sarcoidosis may last for years and may cause organ damage.

Although no organ in the body is immune to sarcoidosis, the disease most frequently involves the lungs, liver spleen, skin, eyes, myocardium, central nervous system, joints, and bones. There are famous people who are battling this disease as well as those that are not in the public eye. The symptoms we experience are not always the same. The cause is unknown and there is no cure. www.denversarcoidosisawareness.org
