Sarcoidosis in Children

  • Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that results in granulomas, which are small, rounded growths consisting of blood vessels, cells and connective tissue.

    • These granulomas invade different parts of the body, including the skin, bones, joints and lungs.

    • Sarcoidosis varies widely from person to person. Some children may experience the disease for several months, while others are affected for years-even a lifetime.

    • Between 30 to 70 percent of patients do not require therapy for the condition.

    The Samara Jan Turkel Clinical Center for Pediatric Autoimmune Disease provides comprehensive and coordinated care and support for patients and families facing the complexities of sarcoidosis and other challenging autoimmune diseases. Clinical care includes outpatient and inpatient treatment, a wide range of rehabilitative therapies, pain management, outreach to complementary therapies such as acupuncture and massage, and developmental and psychosocial support.
