Recent reports indicate that the prevalence of sarcoidosis is rising and mortality in chronic sarcoidosis patients is increasing. With myriad clinical manifestations, and multi-system involvement, there is a need for all clinicians to have a working knowledge of the condition. This Monograph provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent advances in sarcoidosis. Opening with chapters on history, epidemiology and pathobiology, it goes on to provide in-depth coverage of: specific organ manifestations and general diagnostic pathways; traditional as well as innovative treatment strategies; and, importantly, patient quality-of-life assessment. This book will be useful to clinicians around the world.
