Pulmonary sarcoidosis: what you need to know about the disease?
The cost of treating pulmonary diseases in Ukraine is quite high, while the services of domestic medical institutions are far from what the medicine of Europe or Israel offers. Lack of modern equipment often does not allow Ukrainian pulmonologists to diagnose at early stages even very common pulmonary diseases, not to mention sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unclear etiology. There are several versions of what causes the disease. This is an infection, genetic or autoimmune causes, bad ecology. In patients with sarcoidosis, rounded granulomas are formed in the lung tissue without a clear outline. Unlike tuberculosis tubercles, they do not have caseous necrosis.
It is very difficult to diagnose sarcoidosis, since it is accompanied by symptoms typical for many other diseases. People with sarcoidosis usually experience shortness of breath, fatigue, coughing fits, loss of appetite and, as a result, weight loss. At a later stage of sarcoidosis, the lymph nodes enlarge, the body temperature rises, and deformities of the joints appear. But even this symptomatology will not allow a doctor with insufficient experience and without modern high-precision equipment to make the correct diagnosis and draw up an adequate program for the treatment of sarcoidosis.
