Vanderbilt is very committed to treating sarcoidosis, and empowering our patients with this disease.

Sarcoidosis (Sarcoid)

Sarcoidosis (Sarcoid) - A complex multisystem autoimmune disease which affects the lungs, skin, joints, eyes, brain, and other soft tissue organs. There is currently no known cause nor cure for this disease. It is often misdiagnosed. The primary goal of this site is to provide information and to identify resources where you might learn about sarcoidosis and locate others who are struggling with this debilitating disease. As with any such web site discussing diseases or medical issues, the information provided from this site should not be used as a substitute for seeking professional medical diagnosis, treatment and care. Education is the key to understanding and coping with the disease and the identification of the symptoms, while important to identify sarcoidosis, is only the beginning of the needed knowledge to understand what is happening to various parts of the body.
