A review of pulmonary sarcoidosis
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease of unknown aetiology that affects multiple organs, with a predilection for the respiratory system. The defining characteristic is the presence of non-caseating granulomas on histopathology. It is a disease that can mimic several infectious and non-infectious disorders, and implementation of treatment is often delayed if the diagnosis is not suspected.
