Abstract

Objectives: Although sarcoidosis is classically defined to be a disease of young adults, it might also be seen at older ages. There are very few clinical studies which focus on the features of patients diagnosed at older ages. In this study, we tried to determine the frequency of patients diagnosed at or above 50 years of age and to compare the clinical and demographic features of these subjects with other sarcoidosis patients.
