Sarcoidosis / Besnier - Boeck disease

Sarcoidosis is a disease which causes granulomas (lumps of immune cells usually formed to fight an infection) over parts of the body. Usually, the lungs, lymph nodes, and skin are affected, and less commonly, the eyes, liver, brain and heart. Most people recover from sarcoidosis, but when the liver, brain or heart is involved the disease can be fatal.

Get support and help for yourself or for a loved one with sarcoidosis by joining our online support group for sarcoidosis.
