Abstract

Sarcoidosis involves the bronchi or lung in more than 90 percent of patients. Intrathoracic manifestations are protean, ranging from asymptomatic bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy to chronic, progressive, (ultimately fatal), respiratory insufficiency. The clinical course is highlyvariable, and optimal management and treatment are controversial. We review the salient radiographic, physiologic, and histopathologic features of pulmonary sarcoidosis and discuss rare intrathoracic complications (e.g., bronchostenosis, mycetomas, nodular sarcoidosis, necrotizing sarcoid angiitis and granulomatosis, pulmonary vascular and pleuralinvolvement). We discuss the chest radiographic staging system and the role of ancillary diagnostic modalities including high resolution thin section computed tomographic scans (HRCT), bronchoalveolar lavage, radionuclide scan, and serum angiotensin enzyme converting enzyme. Indications for therapy and an overview of therapeutic options are outlined.
