Sarcoidosis is a multi-system disease that most commonly involves the lungs. Respiratory symptoms can be nonspecific such as shortness of breath or cough. Systemic symptoms can be fatigue and weight loss, and depending on the organ of involvement, i.e. liver, eyes, skin, heart, etc., symptoms can include rash, heart failure, neuropathy, arthritis, and reduced vision. Sarcoidosis can be suspected when certain findings are seen on chest CT. These include enlarged lymph nodes in the chest and vague infiltrates in the lungs.
