We describe the observed clinician bias and discuss its implications for clinical practice and research. METHODS(More)
The authors present a personally studied series of 32 patients with sarcoidosis affecting the upper respiratory tract and nose. Twenty-five of these patients had lupus pernio (LP), which in 8 instances was accompanied by sarcoidosis of the upper respiratory tract (SURT). The 7 other patients had SURT (mucosal disease) without LP. There was a female to male(More)

Sarcoidosis of bone has been observed in 29 patients for up to 43 years. It was present in the hands and/or feet in 26 patients, in the nasal bone in three and once each in the hard palate and temporal bones. There were three types of bone lesion: (a) lytic in 25 patients; rounded cortical or medullary lesions ranging in size from 1 mm to 1 cm in diameter,(More)
