Focus on Sarcoidosis
- Pulmonary fibrosing sarcoidosis is associated with increased mortality. This study was aimed to explore the prognosis value of a panel of parameters for predicting mortality.
- It has been over a decade since a comprehensive study has been published that has examined sarcoidosis deaths at the national level. The purpose of this study was to analyze sarcoidosis as the underlying cause of death using current national death certificate data. Results from this project can be used to evaluate and compare trends of sarcoidosis reported deaths across the U.S.
- The prevalence and incidence of sarcoidosis, a granulomatous disorder involving multiple organ systems, varies among geographical regions and ethnicities. This study evaluated the incidence, prevalence, and mortality of sarcoidosis in a large nationwide population-based cohort in Korea.
