Sarcoidosis Clinics

The Pulmonary Division, at the Indiana University School of Medicine, has collaborated with several of its subspecialty partners to develop specialized programs for care of patients with sarcoidosis. Patients are initially evaluated by our pulmonologists who are considered "Sarcoidologists." Once the patient has been evaluated, a plan of care is established to meet the specific needs of the patient and to create the most effective, personalized treatment plan.

Who Should Contact Us?

  • Patients with sarcoidosis
    • newly diagnosed as having sarcoidosis and would like a second opinion
    • not responding to therapy for sarcoidosis
    • any patient interested in participating in research protocols designed to further our understanding of sarcoidosis (not all patients will be eligible)
  • Physicians
    • any referring physician who would like subspecialty consultation for the diagnosis and management of their patients with sarcoidosis
    • Indiana physicians who would like BAL (bronchoalveolar lavage) cellular differential and interpretation

What Do We Offer?

  • education for patients, trainees, and physicians
  • diligent monitoring of treatment side effects
  • novel treatments and research protocols for eligible patients
  • full profile of medical services dedicated to proper diagnosis of sarcoidosis and related diseases
  • consultants with specific expertise in sarcoidosis of the heart, liver, eyes, joints, calcium metabolism, nervous system, blood system, kidney, and others
