Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause, typically affecting young and middle aged adults
Three thousand new cases are diagnosed each year in the United Kingdom
Any organ can be affected—mostly lungs, skin, and eyes—and patients often feel tired and generally unwell
Most patients do not need systemic treatment, and disease often regresses spontaneously, especially in those presenting with erythema nodosum
A minority have potentially life threatening progressive organ dysfunction; these patients need active management including oral corticosteroids
