Were you looking for information about Sarcoidosis? Sarkoidose is a common misspelling of sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis is a disease characterized by inflammation in various organs in your body. This inflammation produces tiny lumps of cells called granulomas that can grow and clump together, creating several groups of lumps, both large and small. The condition typically starts in the lungs or lymph nodes (especially lymph nodes in the chest cavity), but can affect any part of the body. The main sarcoidosis treatment is prednisone, a corticosteroid or anti-inflammatory drug.
