Abstract
To ascertain efficacy of Homoeopathy in treatment of Sarcoidosis, 100 cases during the period since 2007-2014 were selected for study at Homoeo Cure and Research Institute., Kashipur (INDIA). The efficiency of homoeopathic treatment was miraculously seen in all the cases. Almost all were either cured or much relieved.

Aims and objectives
   To study scope of Homoeopathy in treatment of ‘Sarcoidosis’ with its miasmatic analysis. To analyze the results of Homoeopathic medicines when prescribed on the basis of Miasms and on totality of symptoms. To prepare evidence based report on treatment of Sarcoidosis with Homoeopathy.

Introduction
‘Sarcoidosis’ is a ‘not well understood’ complex multisystem, commonplace inflammatory disease, characterized by the formation of noncaseating granulomas. The granuloma is a battle clashed on a genetically susceptible ground between an unrecognized antigen(s) and a highly organized squad of lymphocytes and macrophages. The lungs are the most commonly involved organs, but no structure of the body is known to be immune to its wrecks. The cause of Sarcoidosis is not known till now. Though not common, it often leads to permanent failure or disabilities of the organs ultimately leading to the end of vital functions. ‘Sarcoidosis’, like other disease, affects the person as a whole irrespective of the cause. The whole economy of the patient is altered producing the signs of ‘Sarcoidosis’ as well as a characteristic picture of sick individual including mental and physicals specific to his personality. This disease picture specific to that particular patient is always different from that in another one due to his particular identity proving him to be an ‘Individual’. The totality of symptoms depends upon the Miasms under-running the disease process in that individual. The Psora being the fundamental miasm plays maximum role in altering the physiology rendering the entire imbalance. While in combination with other miasms, it produces the worst stage of the sickness. The syphilis produces destruction of tissues. To combat it, Sycosis and Psora play their vital part. This combination in turn increases the destruction as well as new tissue formation too, producing granulomas and fibromas publishing the complete portrait of Sarcoidosis.

Efficacy of Homoeopathy in Sarcoidosis- a 100 cases report

This article examines the current understanding of Sarcoidosis in terms of Homoeopathy.

Definition of Sarcoidosis
"Sarcoidosis is a disease characterized by the formation in all of several affected tissues of epithelioid-cell tubercles without caseation though fibrinoid necrosis may be present at the centre of a few, proceeding either to resolution or to conversion into hyaline fibrous tissue".

Epidemiology of Sarcoidosis
   Age at presentation 20–40 years More common in females and black people Present throughout the world, but more common in temperate climates

Causes of Sarcoidosis
Possible Causes of Sarcoidosis Mycobacteria Tuberculous Non-tuberculous Cell-wall deficient (L-forms) Bacteria Corynebacterium spp. Propionibacterium acnes Fungi Cryptococcus spp. Endemic fungi Viruses Cytomegalovirus Epstein-Barr virus Herpes simplex virus Dusts Clay Pine Pollen Metals Aluminum Beryllium Zirconium

Tropheryma whippleii

Talc Mixed

Signs and Symptoms of ‘Sarcoidosis’ with Miasmatic Analysis
    Up to one-third are asymptomatic Acute presentation (Lofgren’s syndrome) with fever, malaise , arthralgia, erythema nodosum and uveitis Chronic presentation with fever, weight loss, dry cough or SOB Symptoms are usually mild if thoracic disease only

Rarer presentations include       Hypercalcaemia (renal stones, constipation and dehydration) Red eyes Skin rashes Central and peripheral nerve palsies Hypothalamic deficiency Bilateral salivary gland enlargement Cardiomyopathy or arrhythmias

Radiological features of Sarcoidosis CXR
     May be normal. Stage 1 – bilateral hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy (particularly right paratracheal and aortopulmonary window nodes). Stage 2 – lymphadenopathy and parenchymal disease. Stage 3 – diffuse parenchyma disease only. Stage 4 – pulmonary fibrosis.

Egg shell calcification of both hila

Efficacy of Homoeopathy in Sarcoidosis- a 100 cases report

‘1-2-3 sign’ – Posteroanterior (PA) chest radiograph of a 31-year-old woman with class I Sarcoidosis shows right paratracheal (arrowheads) and bilateral hilar (arrows) lymphadenopathy. This pattern of lymphadenopathy is classic for Sarcoidosis and is referred to as the 1-2-3 sign or Garland triad.
The parenchymal disease involves reticulonodular shadowing in a perihilar, mid zone distribution. There is bronchovascular and fissural nodularity. Rarely air space consolidation or parenchymal bands may also be present. Fibrosis affects the upper zones where the hilar are pulled superiorly and posteriorly. Lymph nodes can demonstrate egg shell calcification.

HRCT
Very good at confirming irregular septal, bronchovascular and fissural nodularity. Traction bronchiectasis, fibrosis and ground glass change may be present. There may also be tracheobronchial stenosis. Also may be seen sub diaphragmatic, cardiac, bone, hepatic and splenic involvement on the same scan.

CT shows precarinal lymphadenopathy with rim calcification (arrow). This pattern of calcification is referred to as eggshell calcification and is commonly seen with Sarcoidosis

Diagnosis of Sarcoidosis
   Histological evidence of granulomatous inflammation. The exclusion of the known causes of granulomatous inflammation other than Sarcoidosis. Evidence of at least two separate organs involved with the disease.

Examinations and Tests for Sarcoidosis
     CBC, Chem-7 or Chem-20, ACE levels Chest x-ray to see if the lungs are involved or lymph nodes are enlarged and CT scan Biopsy of Lymph node, Skin lesion biopsy, lung, Liver, Kidney Bronchoscopy and PFT EKG to see if the heart is involved

Common Complications of Sarcoidosis
      Diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and / or Pulmonary hypertension Anterior uveitis and / or Glaucoma and blindness (rare) Cardiac arrhythmias Cranial or peripheral nerve palsies Kidney stones Organ failure, leading to the need for a transplant

Treatment of Sarcoidosis
Treatment of Sarcoidosis

Main Goals of treatment To improve how the organs affected Sarcoidosis work To relieve symptoms To shrink the granulomas

by

The treatment depends on Involvement of vital organs (e.g., lungs, eyes, heart, or brain) Severity of symptoms Extent of affection of the organs.

Cure rate in children was 100% while the least in the aged. With the advancement of age, cure rate was decreasing but rate of improvement was no doubt, increasing. The patients from higher income group had highest cure rate while those from lower income group had higher improvement rate. The highiest percentage of cure was in Sycosis (50%) with 50% relieved, Pseudopsora (33%) with 67% relieved, Psora (0%) with 100% relieved. The highest cure rate was in pulmonary and ophthalmic sarcoidosis and the least in nephro and cardiac. But all the types of sarcoidosis showed marked improvement. No case was spoiled or not releived. Cure rate was highest in pre pubertal patients, next in females with profuse menses and slightly lower in others, almost same. Cure rate was highest in Sycosis, then Psora and least in Syphilis miasms. While prescribing on constitutional basis, cure rate was 54% and while prescribing onpathological basis, it was only 7%. Relief rate was higher in pathological prescribing (93%) and in constitutional prescribing, it was 46%. Cure rate of the indicated remedies in this study was about 100% in more than half of the number of remedies used. While all other remedies had not less than 50% cure rate.

Conclusion The above study confirms the efficacy of Homoeopathy in treatment of Sarcoidosis in all stages and all types, with amazing success when applied as per laws of similia and proves its superiority among all the existing streams of treatment. Further studies are needed to understand the mechanism of action of Homoeopathic remedies in Sarcoidosis. Bibliography
