Authors: Ramos-Casals M, Retamozo S, Sisó-Almirall A, Pérez-Alvarez R, Pallarés L, Brito-Zerón P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Sarcoidosis is a complex systemic disease with a silent, long-term evolution, and a heterogeneous clinical presentation. The diagnostic approach is complex with no single diagnostic test that may confirm the disease. Areas Covered: A large list of serum biomarkers has been tested during the last 40 years. In this review, we analyse the potential usefulness in the diagnosis and prognosis of sarcoidosis of serum biomarkers classified according to their corresponding cellu...

Authors: Isshiki T, Matsuyama H, Sakamoto S, Honma N, Mikami T, Shibuya K, Eishi Y, Homma S Abstract Although numerous recent studies have reported the development of sarcoidosis in patients treated with TNF-α inhibitors, it is unclear whether the pathogenesis of drug-induced sarcoidosis is identical to that of spontaneous sarcoidosis. We herein present the case of a patient who developed sarcoidosis 6 months after the introduction of etanercept as treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Typical clinical symptoms with noncaseating epithelioid granulomas detected in a mediastinal lymph node specimen were consisten...

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2019Source: Autoimmunity ReviewsAuthor(s): Silvia Martina Ferrari, Poupak Fallahi, Ilaria Ruffilli, Giusy Elia, Francesca Ragusa, Salvatore Benvenga, Alessandro AntonelliAbstractGraves' disease (GD) and autoimmune thyroiditis (AT) are the two main clinical presentations of AITD, and their clinical hallmarks are thyrotoxicosis and hypothyroidism, respectively. GD, and AT, can be associated with other organ specific, or systemic autoimmune diseases in the same patient. However discordant results have been reported in the literature about the possible associations. Here, we review...

The Sarcoidosis Health Questionnaire (SHQ) is the first sarcoidosis-specific health status questionnaire ever developed. Worse health status, as evaluated by the SHQ, indicates higher risk for deterioration in the following 5 years.

We describe recruitment efforts and assess efficacy of internet-based advertising on recruitment. Methods: "Worldwide Sarcoidosis Research Study (WISE)" started in 2011 under the domain www.sarcoidstudy.org. The registry includes thirteen patient-reported surveys about patient characteristics, diagnosis, and treatment. Effects of two internet-based advertising methods (geographically-broad versus geographically-targeted to high sarcoidosis search areas) on recruitment were analyzed with time series regression. Results: Since 2011, over 1500 participants have registered (82% whites, 9% African Americans, 5...

An 80-year-old man with metastatic melanoma had been receiving treatment with pembrolizumab from September 2015 until June 2017. Series FDG PET/CT scans from March 7, 2017, to June 14, 2018, showed the course of biopsy-proven pembrolizumab-induced sarcoidosis. Reported here is the first case of multiorgan sarcoidosis induced by pembrolizumab and its self-resolving course on FDG PET/CT.

AbstractGranulomatous lesions of the orofacial region are a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by a granulomatous reaction to a variety of stimuli. Infectious agents, foreign material, systemic inflammation and metabolic disorders can all be associated with granulomatous inflammation. In the orofacial region primary causes of granulomatosis include foreign body reaction, delayed hypersensitivity to topical agents and idiopathic orofacial granulomatosis. Secondary causes of granulomas include infectious agents, sarcoid, and Crohn disease. For this review, infectious causes of orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) inclu...
