This review of a most intriguing disease informs the reader of what is known of its possible pathogenesis and also indicates the gaps in knowledge still to be filled in. 
Sarcoidosis: Still a Mystery?
TLDR
Sarcoidosis is a diagnosis of exclusion established by clinical manifestations, radiologic findings, and histologic evidence of noncaseating epithelioid-cell granulomas in >1 organ.

TLDR
Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulo­ matous disease of unknown aetio­ logy associated with a broad range of immunological abnormalities in both the cell-mediated and humoral limbs of the immune re­ sponse.
Granulomatous hepatitis in a patient with Crohn's disease and cholestasis
We describe a case of a 23-year-old woman with a history of Crohn's disease (CD), who initially presented with sepsis-like symptoms, subsequently developed severe cholestasis and following extensive
Reduced Prevalence of Smokers in Sarcoidosis
TLDR
In an earlier study, a smaller percentage of smokers in a cohort of sarcoidosis patients than in the general population was found, and this point was reinvestigated using matched controls.
Pathogenetic mechanism of oral granulomatous diseases: An update

TLDR
Understanding various pathogenic mechanisms underlying various granulomatous conditions affecting oral tissues which mainly revolve around inflammatory cells such as macrophages, T lymphocytes, and genetic mutations might aid in devising treatment modalities without having significant side-effects or morbidity in affected subjects.
Sarcoidosis and the Th 1 chemokine MIG
TLDR
Granulomatous inflammation is characterized by a Type-1 helper (Th1)-mediated immune response with accumulation of macrophages, monocytes, and activated immune cells in granuloma annulare.

Sarcoidosis: Immunopathogenesis and Immunological Markers
TLDR
The immunological features of sarcoidosis are outlined, the evidence for and against various candidate etiological agents (infective and noninfective), the exhaled breath condensate is described, and a novel method of identifying immunological biomarkers is described to better characterise the immunopathogenesis of sarCOidosis.
