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.
Regardless of your sarcoidosis symptoms, you can trust the experts at National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado. Our sarcoidosis program is the largest in Colorado and in the Rocky Mountain region. Our team of specialists works with you to manage your sarcoidosis and improve your quality of life.
