What is Sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis is a lung disease that causes the immune system to overreact, leading to health issues. Patients with sarcoidosis typically have clusters of inflamed tissue called granulomas on their body. Sarcoidosis most commonly affects the lungs, but it can also affect any organ in the body.
An increased inflammation in the body may cause flu-like symptoms, persistent cough, chest pain, joint pain, fatigue, and poor lung function from scarring. Eye, cardiac and skin damage has also been reported.
