Sarcoidosis can affect any organ in the body. Frequently extrapulmonary manifestations of the disease are the major cause of morbidity. Treatment of extrapulmonary sarcoidosis often requires consideration of alternative immunosuppressive agents, topical therapy, or therapy that is not specifically directed against the granulomatous inflammation of the disease. This article reviews the clinical presentation and therapy of extrapulmonary sarcoidosis. 
Clinical Manifestations of Sarcoidosis
Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology that is characterized from the point of view of pathology of the presence of noncaseating granulomas in affected organs. TypicallyExpand
