Özet

Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. The present study has been designed to evaluate the importance of diastolic dysfunction with left atrial volume index (LAVi) and left ventricular mass index (LVMi) in determining subclinical cardiac involvement in subjects with stage I-II pulmonary sarcoidosis.
