Sarcoidosis is a disease triggered by an atypical collection of granulomas, the inflammatory cells that are formed as nodules in the organs of the human body. Sarcoidosis may occur in any organ of the body like lymph nodes, skin, eyes, joints, spleen, kidney, lungs, heart, salivary glands, etc. More than 90% of the sarcoidosis cases are found with inflammation in the lungs and this type is called as pulmonary sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis involving the central nervous system is called as Neurosarcoidosis in which granulomas are found in various tissues. Neurosarcoidosis are found in only 1% of the patients and nearly 10% of the patients are affected by other sarcoidosis diseases. According to the studies on the disease sarcoidosis, the causes of sarcoidosis are unidentified and the Cardiac sarcoidosis is an uncommon one.
