Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that can affect any organ in the body, but most often affects the lungs. People with sarcoidosis have abnormal masses, called granulomas, that can damage an organ, causing it to change or stop working right. Some people with sarcoidosis have few or very minor symptoms, others have very serious illness.
