Sarcoidosis and sacroiliitis, a case report.
Summary of "Sarcoidosis and sacroiliitis, a case report."
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder of unknown etiology characterized by the presence of non-caseating granulomas in the organs affected. Sarcoid arthropathy is a rare manifestation, and sacroiliitis is an unusual first manifestation of the disorder.

Sarcoidosis is recognized as a multiorgan disorder characterized by the presence of non-caseating granulomas in the involved tissues. It has been suggested that sarcoidosis might be due to the exposur...
Sarcoidosis is classified as an acquired systemic granulomatous disease. Because of the fact that sarcoidosis affects multiple tissues and organs, it is characterized by many potential signs and sympt...
The association of hepatic sarcoidosis with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is considerably rare. Here we report a rare case of HCC associated with sarcoidosis.
Gastrointestinal (GI) sarcoidosis is a very rare disease, which clinically presents along with systemic disease or as an isolated finding. Gastric sarcoidosis is the most common form of GI sarcoidosis...
Myocardial sarcoidosis is known as a significant complication of sarcoidosis, but Holter electrocardiographic monitoring or echocardiograms might not be sensitive enough to detect cardiac involvement....
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease involving most frequently the lung, the eyes, the lymph nodes and the skin. Skin lesions may be disfiguring and impair the quality of life. Thalidomide...
Reduction of signs and symptoms in patients with moderate to severely early axial spondyloarthritis (without radiological sacroiliitis) who have had an inadequate response to or do not tol...
to determine the genetic pathways operating at the tissue level to cause granulomatous inflammation in the lungs and lymph nodes of patients with sarcoidosis. By so doing, we hope to iden...
The exact cause of the chronic lung disease sarcoidosis is still unknown. Consequently, a complete efficacious treatment is still not available. Earlier studies indicate an important key r...
The purpose of this study is to compare peoples with disease (sarcoidosis) to those without disease. We want to see if people with sarcoidosis have a different immune response to those pe...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
Sarcoidosis affecting predominantly the lungs, the site most frequently involved and most commonly causing morbidity and mortality in sarcoidosis. Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterized by sharply circumscribed granulomas in the alveolar, bronchial, and vascular walls, composed of tightly packed cells derived from the mononuclear phagocyte system. The clinical symptoms when present are dyspnea upon exertion, nonproductive cough, and wheezing. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p431)
Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
A manifestation of sarcoidosis marked by chronic inflammation of the parotid gland and the uvea.
