Abstract

The authors have staged by CT 57 cases of sarcoidosis. In all cases CT has given superior semiologic pattern in comparison with plain-films which are the classical baseline references (Turiaf)...up to date. 30% of type I sarcoidosis are staged as type II by thin-section CT slices. This radio-clinic evaluation must be continued on months to find if this group is an homogeneous one in the prognostic meaning and if cortico-therapy is useful. The authors propose a systematic CT evaluation of sarcoidosis in 1987 and a CT actualization of the radiologic classification of the disease.
