Spirometry, cardiopulmonary exercise testing and the six-minute walk test results in sarcoidosis patients.
Conclusions: According to this study, ventilatory limitation, pulmonary involvement, and deconditioning are the main causes of activity limitations in sarcoidosis patients. PMID: 32476953 [PubMed - in process]
We present the case of a 63-year-old woman who developed subcutaneous nodules. A skin biopsy revealed necrotizing vasculitis and noncaseating granulomas, which are characteristic of sarcoidosis. Immunohistostaining revealed a P. acnes skin infection, which led to the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Minocycline treatment resolved the infection and improved the patient's symptoms. We herein report a case in which immunohistochemistry was useful in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. PMID: 32536653 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion and conclusion: Our study indicated a significant association between disease activity and smoking as well as a non-significant association between the clinical manifestations and disease outcome of PSV with smoking in Azeri population. Although further studies are needed to confirm these preliminary results, it seems that smoking may not be a significant risk factor for PSV. PMID: 32476959 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Louis BC, Gerald DR, Rodney ER, Chris JR Abstract This original research is a directional study that determined the habits of individuals using four analyses to find statistical significance in the data collected from the surveys of 801 qualified of 1,340 individuals who agreed to participate. Results from the self-reported diagnosis of individuals affected by sarcoidosis produced seven statistically significant indicators of future research needed. The demographics revealed a significantly greater number of women and African-Americans participants than other minorities in the United States and suggested a...
Authors: Chuling F, Qian Z, Na W, Xiaoyan J, Zuojun X Abstract Background: Pulmonary sarcoidosis patients who get disease progression despite corticosteroid treatment or can't tolerate corticosteroid required second-line drug. Methotrexate (MTX) is the most widely used in our clinical practice. Data on its safety and efficacy at different doses are still limited, especially for those without folic acid supplements. Objective: To report effectiveness of different MTX dosages and tolerability of MTX in pulmonary sarcoidosis without folic acid supplements. Methods: A retrospective study on pulmonary sarcoidosi...
Conclusion: Sarcoidosis cannot be reliably differentiated from tuberculosis based on cytomorphology alone. A combination of clinical features, endosonography, cytology and microbiology is required for accurate diagnosis. PMID: 32476956 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: Patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis in first years after diagnosis have higher risk of venous thromboembolism than coronary artery disease. This finding is probably related to hypercoagulability induced by the disease and its therapy. PMID: 32476955 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: MPO-ANCA-positive patients with ILD do not show the typical UIP pattern as seen in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis on surgical lung biopsy. PMID: 32476954 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Addition of rhTM to CS, and a low initial CS maintenance dose (0.5 mg/kg), were associated with better 3-month survival in patients with AE-IPF. PMID: 32476952 [PubMed - in process]
