Were you looking for information about Sarcoidosis? Sarkoidosis is a common misspelling of sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis is a common disease that produces inflammation, usually in the form of tiny lumps of cells (technically called granulomas) in various organs in the body. It usually starts in the lungs or lymph nodes in the chest cavity, but may also affect the eyes, liver, and skin. If many granulomas form in an organ, they can affect how the organ works. Treatment for sarcoidosis depends on how severe your symptoms are, whether any of your critical organs are affected, and how they are affected.
