For over a century, sarcoidosis has been recognized and written about. Izumi, as guest editor and contributor to this issue of Dermatology Clinics entitled "Sarcoidosis," has attempted to give us an overall update of this disease through contributions from authorities in specific areas of this disease or related conditions. The subjects reviewed are as follows: sarcoidosis: past, present, and future concepts; experimental granulomatosis; granuloma formation and fibrosis in sarcoidosis; cutaneous sarcoidosis: definitions and types of lesions; relationship of cutaneous sarcoidosis to systemic disease; immunologic studies on cutaneous lesions in sarcoidosis; the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of cutaneous sarcoidosis; cutaneous sarcoidosis: prognosis and treatment; erythema nodosum; pulmonary sarcoidosis: radiographic features; pathology of pulmonary sarcoidosis; activity of pulmonary sarcoidosis; pulmonary sarcoidosis: steroid treatment; ocular sarcoidosis; sarcoidosis of the head and neck; cardiac sarcoidosis; sarcoidosis in various organs; the Kveim-Siltzbach test; and diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
