07/05/2007

Question:

My father is suffering this disease last 6 year he had pulmonary sarcoid taking 10mg predenisolon last 6 year

Please can you send me latest survey about this disease.

Answer:

There are many reviews on this topic, but only a few have been comprehensive in their scope. The last effort of this sort was made in 1999. It was a consensus statement between the American Thoracic Society, European Thoracic Society, and World Association of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders. I have attached the document here.

Even though it is 8 years old, the basic content of the review reflects our current understanding of the disease.
