The predisposition to sarcoidosis is genetically determined, and genetics appears also to account for the variability in clinical phenotype and behaviour. Many genetic loci have been investigated to date, mainly in case-control association studies. However, only a small number of human leukocyte...
Most of treatments for cutaneous sarcoidosis are extensions of the drugs tested for pulmonary sarcoidosis. There are some exceptions. These include drugs given topically and those with high concentrations in the skin. This review will examine the conventional treatments of cutaneous sarcoidosis...

Susceptibility to most human diseases is polygenic, with complex interactions between functional polymorphisms of single genes governing disease incidence, phenotype, or both. In this context, the contribution of any discrete gene is generally modest for a single individual, but may confer...
