Conclusions: Neurosarcoidosis is an elusive diagnosis and can cause hearing loss and psychiatric symptoms. Cochlear implantation for patients with severe hearing loss should be considered once the diagnosis is confirmed, as it is possible to achieve a successful level of hearing. Psychiatric symptoms can manifest with the onset of neurosarcoidosis, result from CN deficits, or develop as a side effect from long-term, high-dose corticosteroids, and should be monitored carefully in patients with neurosarcoidosis.Audiol Neurotol 2017;22:205-217

Authors: Tanaka Y, Taima K, Tanaka H, Itoga M, Ishioka Y, Shiratori T, Tsuchiya J, Sakamoto H, Takanashi S, Tasaka S Abstract Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory granulomatous disease that is systemic, but bone involvement is uncommon. A 68-year-old man was referred to our hospital complaining of right shoulder pain with numbness. Computed tomography revealed systemic lymphadenopathy and multiple bone lesions. Because malignant lymphoma with a mass lesion protruding into the vertebral canal was considered, he underwent urgent radiotherapy. Thereafter, a needle biopsy of the left parasternal node was performed and showed...

Authors: Oka S, Umetani K, Harama T, Shimizu T, Makino A, Sano K, Nakamura M Abstract A 77-year-old Japanese woman presented with asymptomatic abdominal lymphadenopathy. Soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL2R) and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) levels were elevated, and a pathological examination of lymph-node biopsies revealed non-caseating granulomas, which was consistent with sarcoidosis. Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography did not show a clear accumulation in the mediastinal lymph-nodes or heart. Five months later, she presented with acute progressive heart failure that was refractory to convent...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Sarcoidosis is prevalent worldwide with significant heterogeneity across different ethnic groups. We aimed To describe the clinical characteristics and computed tomography findings among Arab patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis. METHODS: A retrospective study of patient demographics, symptoms, co-morbid illness, sarcoidosis stage, treatment, pulmonary function and CT results. RESULTS: Of 104 patients, most (77%) were 40 years of age or older at diagnosis, and females in this category (≥40 years ) significantly outnumbered male patients (69/104 (66.3%) vs. 35/104 (33.7%),P=.003). The m...

Sarcoidosis remains an enigmatic disease. Its cause is unknown, the indications for treatment are often unclear, and its natural history is variable. An additional important enigmatic issue that has hampered clinical sarcoidosis research is the failure to develop reliable and universally accepted clinical endpoints.

Fatigue is a major and disabling problem in sarcoidosis. Knowledge concerning correlates of the development of fatigue and possible interrelationships is lacking.

Authors: Darwiche K, Özkan F, Wolters C, Eisenmann S Abstract Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) with the two modalities curved and radial EBUS significantly improved the diagnostics in several pulmonary diseases. The examination and staging of mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes in patients with known or suspected lung malignancy as well as the evaluation of unknown pulmonary or mediastinal lesions can be achieved with minimal invasive means when using EBUS. More invasive surgical procedures for diagnostic purposes can be omitted. The diagnostic yield also increases when EBUS is applied in sarcoidosis or mediast...

CONCLUSION: Recurrent parotiditis in children is an uncommon condition. The onset of parotid swelling at 5 years or over deserves screening for disimmune disorders, sarcoidosis, or Sjögren syndrome. Diagnosis of Sjögren syndrome is based on diagnostic criteria. PMID: 29158045 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
