Pulmonary sarcoidosis

  • Paul Forgacs
Part of the Problems in Practice Series book series (PRIP, volume 2)

Hypercalcaemia with the attendant risk of renal failure, and uveitis endangering the eyesight are generally accepted indications of treatment. Disfiguring cutaneous lesions are also often treated.
