Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology that may affect many systems, mainly lungs. Most of the patients present at stages I and II lung involvement. Pulmonary infiltrates without hilar lymphadenopathy (state III) rarely occurs. Extrapulmonary organ involvement is common in pediatric sarcoidosis.
