So What is Sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis (SAR-COY-DOE-SIS) is a “multiorgan” disease – meaning it almost always involves more than one organ.
It is a potentially fatal inflammatory disease that can appear in any organ in the body.
Although the lungs are affected in more than 90% of patients, the disease often attacks the heart, eyes,
central nervous system, liver and kidneys.
Once thought rare, sarcoidosis is now known to be common and affects people worldwide.
The cause remains unknown and THERE IS NO CURE.
