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.
