Background Sarcoidosis is a rare lung disease in children. The aim of the present study was to provide update information on disease presentation and progression, patient management and prognosis factors in a cohort of children with lung sarcoidosis. Methods With the network of the French Reference Centre for Rare Lung Diseases (RespiRare), we collected information on a large cohort of paediatric thoracic sarcoidosis to provide information on disease presentation, management and outcome… Expand
Child–Adult Transition in Sarcoidosis: A Series of 52 Patients
TLDR
Pediatric-onset sarcoidosis needed a long-term treatment in almost half of the patients, and around one fifth of pediatric-onsets patients had severe sarCOidosis consequences in adulthood. Expand
Paediatric sarcoidosis.
TLDR
This review aims to provide an overview of current knowledge on sarcoidosis in children, providing a summary of the data available from cohort studies on the presentation, the management and the evolution of the disease in this specific population. Expand
Common symptoms for a rare disease in a girl with sarcoidosis: a case report
TLDR
It is pointed out that pediatricians should consider sarcoidosis in the differential diagnosis in case of systemic symptoms, even in absence of other specific clinical clues, because they represent the most common clinical manifestations on presentation in children. Expand
Clinical Profile and Outcome of Pediatric Sarcoidosis
TLDR
Children with sarcoidosis seem to respond well to systemic steroids and low dose methotrexate, and delayed diagnosis and ocular involvement are probably associated with poor outcome. Expand
Case Report: Pediatric Renal Sarcoidosis and Prognostic Factors in Reviewed Cases
TLDR
The factors indicating a trend toward an unfavorable renal outcome in pediatric sarcoidosis are renal concentration impairment and granulomatous interstitial nephritis at presentation, while a higher GFR is beneficial. Expand
How to Tackle the Diagnosis and Treatment in the Diverse Scenarios of Extrapulmonary Sarcoidosis
TLDR
To improve diagnosis accuracy, extrapulmonary manifestations need to be known and a medical strategy is warranted to avoid both under- and over-diagnosis. Expand
Pediatric Sarcoidosis: A Review with Emphasis on Early Onset and High-Risk Sarcoidosis and Diagnostic Challenges
TLDR
A systematic review of sarcoidosis in the pediatric population with particular emphases on early onset sarCOidosis, high-risk sarcoids, and newly reported or unusual Sarcoid-related diseases is performed. Expand
Ultrasonography and Computed Tomographic Manifestations of Abdominal Sarcoidosis in Children
TLDR
Abdominal manifestations in children sarcoidosis are frequent but often nonspecific, and awareness of this association could assist the clinicians in assessing the initial diagnosis of abdominal sarCOidosis in children. Expand

TLDR
This review provides an update on chILD pathophysiology and diagnosis approaches in immunocompetent children and includes current information on genetic causes. Expand

TLDR
The portrayed atypical hematologic, neurologic, and renal manifestations further emphasize the masquerading nature of sarcoidosis. Expand

TLDR
In this study, the majority of sarcoidosis patients were receiving systemic therapy five years after initial diagnosis and patients with reduced lung function, neurologic disease, lupus pernio, and cardiac disease were more likely to require prolonged treatment. Expand
The clinical course of sarcoidosis: presentation, diagnosis, and treatment in a large white and black cohort in the United States.
TLDR
It is indicated that sarcoidosis tends to improve over time in terms of pulmonary function and medication requirements, and the disease was found to be more severe in blacks than whites. Expand

TLDR
In Danish children, sarcoidosis had a favourable prognosis; the majority recovered <6 yrs after onset of disease; some developed chronic active disease and impairment of pulmonary function, demanding continuous medical treatment. Expand

TLDR
A wide variety of common and less common clinical characteristics of sarcoidosis are reviewed, including small fiber neuropathy and fatigue syndromes, and they are observed in a large percentage of patients. Expand
Clinical presentation of sarcoidosis and diagnostic work-up.
TLDR
D diagnosis relies on compatible clinical and radiological presentation, evidence of noncaseating granulomas and exclusion of other diseases with a similar presentation or histology, and the probability of diagnosis at presentation is variable from case to case. Expand

TLDR
The evaluation of disease activity appears to be critical for therapy in pediatrics, and for this purpose studies of alveolar macrophage activation may be of particular interest. Expand

TLDR
Sarcoidosis is a multiorgan system disease that often presents insidiously and must be evaluated and differentiated with a particular emphasis on tuberculosis due to the multiple overlapping symptoms and findings. Expand
