Respiratory Medicine 2012, 106 (10): 1351-61
This manuscript offers an approach to the treatment of pulmonary sarcoidosis based on current available information.

The decision to treat rests predominantly on the presence of significant symptoms or functional limitation. Corticosteroids are the drug of choice. Alternative agents to corticosteroids may be useful primarily as corticosteroid sparing agents.
