Sarcoidosis

I am proud to be a participant in a campaign by the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research to help educate people on this terrible mystery disease that I was diagnosed with and to raise awareness and money towards more research.
Sarcoidosis (Sarcoid) is an immune system disorder typically noted by small inflammatory nodules (granulomas).  Any organ in your body can be affected; nevertheless, granulomas have been observed to most frequently occur in the lungs or even the lymph nodes. Although the lungs are affected in more than 90% of patients, the disease often attacks the heart, eyes, central nervous system, liver and kidneys as well.

Sarcoidosis is known to be unpredictable. The cause is unknown and it can appear abruptly and disappear. It can even develop progressively and then result in symptoms which rise and fall, at times lasting for a lifetime. The clinical course generally varies and ranges from asymptomatic disease to a debilitating chronic condition that may lead to death.

When viewing lung X-rays, sarcoidosis can take on the appearance of other diseases such as tuberculosis or lymphoma.
