Sarcoidosis, of unknown etiology, may result from exposure of a genetically susceptible subject to a specific environmental agent(s), possibly an infectious one, although none has been identified. Propionibacterium acnes is so far the only bacterium to be isolated from sarcoid lesions. Genomes of P. acnes have been detected in large numbers in sarcoid lymph nodes by the quantitative polymerase chain reaction. By in situ hybridization, P. acnes genomes were found in sarcoid lymph nodes in and… Expand
