Were you looking for information about Sarcoidosis? Sarcoidoses is a common misspelling of sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis is a disease that occurs mostly in people ages 20 to 40. It involves inflammation that produces tiny lumps of cells, called granulomas, in various organs in the body. If many granulomas form in an organ, such as the lungs or liver, they can affect how the organ works and may cause symptoms. The main treatment for sarcoidosis is prednisone (a corticosteroid or anti-inflammatory drug), which is usually given for many months or even for a year or two.
