The diagnosis and management of sarcoidosis
Shah L, Iannuzzi MC

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease characterized by frequent remissions and exacerbations. Patients may have multiple pulmonary and extrapulmonary symptoms that may be difficult to assess and manage. The health-related quality of life of individuals suffering from sarcoidosis matches that of patients with symptomatic AIDS or end-stage renal disease, with significant decrements in physical, emotional, and social functioning. Because sarcoidosis has many and protean manifestations, it may often be difficult to diagnose. In addition, deciding on a course of treatment can be difficult in patients whose symptoms are quiescent or slowly progressive. Many cases of sarcoidosis are diagnosed and managed by primary care physicians. It is increasingly important for physicians to accurately diagnose, assess, and treat based on a patientís specific symptoms and psychosocial needs. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the symptoms of sarcoidosis 2. State the risk factors for sarcoidosis 3.Describe the workup of a patient with suspected sarcoidosis 4. Describe the treatment of sarcoidosis
