What is the Effective Treatment for Sarcoidosis?
What is Sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic disorder which is characterized by the formation of immune granulomas in the organs that are affected. It is an inflammatory disorder that affects multiple organs in the body but mostly the lungs and lymph glands are affected. The abnormal masses or nodules commonly known as granulomas which consist of inflamed tissues develop in certain parts of the body.
It is a ubiquitous disorder with an incidence estimated at around 16.5/100,000 in men and 19/100,000 in women. It primarily affects young and middle-aged adults. In sarcoidosis, lungs and lymphatic system are mainly affected but virtually other organs may be involved. Other severe manifestations may result from cardiac, pulmonary, neurological, kidney or laryngeal localizations. Abnormal metabolism of Vitamin D3 within granulomatous lesions and hypercalcemia are also possible.
In most benign cases, no treatment is required but a regular follow- up until recovery is necessary. In more serious cases, medical treatment is required either initially or at some point during follow up according to clinical manifestations.
What are the Symptoms of Sarcoidosis?
- Due to the involvement of lungs, patients with sarcoidosis experience pulmonary symptoms which include shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, persistent dry cough, etc.
- Cutaneous sarcoidosis occurs when it affects skin leading to the symptoms such as skin rashes, appearance of red or purple coloured bumps which are located on the ankles and shins which are warm and tender to touch.
- When it affect the eyes, the patient may develop a blurred vision with pressure and pain in the eyes, redness of the eyes, increased sensitivity to light etc.
- If it affects the heart, then symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, fluttering heartbeats, swelling due to excessive fluid retention may take place.
- The symptoms which occur due to affected joints are severe pain, swelling in the joints, restriction in mobility etc.
What are the Causes of Sarcoidosis?
According to modern medicine, the etiology remains unknown but the prevailing hypothesis is that there are various unidentified antigens of either infectious or environmental origin could trigger an exaggerated immune reaction.
Diagnosis of Sarcoidosis
It is difficult to diagnose because the symptoms of sarcoidosis mimic other health conditions. In the beginning, there are no signs and symptoms present. It can be diagnosed by physical examination such as examining lymph nodes for swelling, examining skin lesions etc. Diagnostic tests that can be helpful in the diagnosis of Sarcoidosis are:
- X-ray of the chest and lungs to check the lungs and heart
- Lung pulmonary function tests
- Eye examination to detect vision problems
- Small sample of tissue can be taken from the part of the body to look for the granulomas which are commonly seen in this condition.
