Introduction: Sarcoidosis is a chronic inflammatory disorder with an unknown etiology characterized by noncaseating granulomas. The disorder is a multisystemic disease and affects many organs, including most often the lung, lymph nodes, skin, heart, liver, muscles, and the eye. Matherial and Methods: Based on a review of the literature and on an algorithm generated in an international workshop on sarcoidosis, this article provides the reader with a schematic and simple approach to the diagnosis… Expand
C Sarcoidosis
Current Opinion in Ophthalmology 2011, 22:502–507 Purpose of review Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder that can include ocular lesions. Although the precise etiology of the disease is as yet notExpand
Sarcoidosis with ocular involvement
TLDR
A case of sarcoidosis with ocular involvement with early detection and treatment results in better prognosis is described to highlight this important sight-threatening condition. Expand
Sarcoidosis and uveitis.
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria for sarcoidosis uveitis when biopsy is unavailable or negative are established based on a combination of ophthalmological findings and laboratory tests, and infliximab and adalimumab have been recently proposed for the treatment of refractory or sight-threatening systemic sarcoIDosis. Expand
Unilateral Right Exophthalmia Revealing Systemic Sarcoidosis: A Case Report and a Review of the Literature
Background: Sarcoidosis is only revealed in 3% of the cases among Caucasians by ophthalmic damage and, when it does, it presupposes that the visceral impairment has remained silent so far. In thisExpand
Tuberculosis or sarcoidosis: Opposite ends of the same disease spectrum?
TLDR
It is suggested that tuberculosis and sarcoidosis are two ends of the same spectrum and a classification system is proposed: Sarcoidotic-Sarcoid-Tuberculous (ST); Tuberculous Sarcoids (TS) and Tuberculosis (TB). Expand
Broncho-alveolar Lavage (BAL) for the Diagnosis of Sarcoidosic Uveitis
TLDR
The findings suggest that BAL have a high diagnostic value and might be a useful additional test for the diagnosis of sarcoidosic uveitis, even with normal chest imaging. Expand
Gender and Ocular Manifestations of Connective Tissue Diseases and Systemic Vasculitides
TLDR
The ocular findings in various connective tissue diseases and systemic vasculitides are reviewed and gender differences in each disease are highlighted and it is found that dry eyes affect women nine times more than men. Expand
Algorithm of Choroiditis
TLDR
The diagnostic approach of choroiditis is reviewed based on clinical presentations, investigations and ancillary tests to help make a prompt diagnosis. Expand
Uveal metastatic disease: current and new treatment options (review).
TLDR
Bvacizumab (Avastin), a potent monoclonal antibody that has also been employed for the treatment of ocular vaso-proliferative diseases, has been used in the Treatment of choroidal metastasis and has shown promising results. Expand
Economic burden of sarcoidosis in a commercially-insured population in the United States
TLDR
An estimate of the healthcare resource utilization (HCRU) and costs borne by commercial payers for sarcoidosis patients in the US and the burden of HCRU and work loss over the 12-month period following the index date is provided. Expand

RETINOPATHY IN SARCOIDOSIS
TLDR
The retinal aspects of sarcoidosis are emphasized and the general literature has been reviewed and a brief summary of the general disease is presented. Expand
Controversy: Ocular Sarcoidosis
TLDR
There is significant uptake and use of the diagnostic criteria for ocular sarcoidosis, although there still remained considerable differences in opinion with regard to whether or not this was an isolated condition affecting only the eye and how this should be diagnosed and appropriately managed. Expand
Sarcoidosis and its ophthalmic manifestations.
TLDR
Of 532 cases of sarcoidosis in the southeastern United States, ocular manifestations were a prominent feature of the disease in 202 (38%) of the patients, and the incidence of central nervous system sarcoIDosis was increased when posterior segment involvement was observed. Expand
Ocular involvement in chronic sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Despite the chronic nature of the underlying disease, the anterior uveitis did not pursue a chronic course in 15 of 33 patients (45%) and was generally characterized by a single episode at the onset of disease. Expand
[Ocular sarcoidosis. Retrospective study of 18 cases].
TLDR
An adequate control of ocular inflammation may improve the prognosis in patients with ocular sarcoidosis and Posterior segment involvement (posterior uveitis, macular edema or epiretinal membrane) may be associated with a worse visual prognosis. Expand
Intraocular manifestations of systemic sarcoidosis.
TLDR
It is emphasized that all patients with systemic sarcoidosis need a thorough eye examination, which should include gonioscopy, and the presence of intraocular lesions in a significant number of patients with sarcoIDosis is indicated. Expand
CHOROIDAL WHITE LESIONS AS AN EARLY MANIFESTATION OF SARCOIDOSIS
TLDR
The pattern of inflammatory white choroidal lesions distributed in the peripheral retina that atrophy and coalesce with time and that are associated with uveitis in middle‐aged white women may represent an early form of sarcoidosis. Expand
Fundus changes in histologically confirmed sarcoidosis.
TLDR
The disease seems primarily to involve equatorial retinal veins, and occlusions of a hemisphere branch vein or central retinal vein did not occur, and patients seemed to have less florid periphlebitis than others. Expand
THE EYES IN SARCOIDOSIS*
TLDR
The present paper is a detailed study of the eyes of 185 patients with sarcoidosis by the same group of observers using a standard examination technique and concludes that the eyes were more often affected in the Negro. Expand
CHOROIDAL GRANULOMAS IN SYSTEMIC SARCOIDOSIS
TLDR
Choroidal granulomas related to systemic sarcoidosis respond well to oral corticosteroids and may recur but good vision can be maintained. Expand
