Sarcoidosis


Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease of unknown cause that often involves the lungs, but can also involve other vital organs.  Sarcoidosis can be confused with other lung diseases.  In most cases, sarcoidosis requires little or no treatment, but the optimal treatment of sarcoidosis can be very complicated in certain sarcoidosis patients.  The Ohio State University Sarcoidosis Clinic is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of sarcoidosis involving the lungs and other organs.  Using the latest technology and by integrating the most recent advances in the field, we strive to individualize the care of each sarcoidosis patient to minimize the impact of the disease on their daily lives.  To this end, we are investigating new treatments and exploring the causes of sarcoidosis through ongoing research programs.
