Sarcoidosis; It is a rheumatological disease that occurs when the immune system reacts against various tissues in the body and causes different clinical pictures for each patient. Unlike other immune problems, sarcoidosis causes inflamed tissues called granulomas in the tissues.
Although sarcoidosis forms granulomas similar to the skin disorders seen in tuberculosis (TB), it is not an infectious disease.
Since sarcoidosis can involve almost any tissue in the body, unlike other rheumatological diseases, it can cause a wide variety of clinical symptoms depending on the organ or system involved. However, sarcoidosis most commonly causes symptoms in the lymph nodes, lungs, eyes, and skin.
