peripheral blood test for metal hypersensitivity (MELISA test)
Other: MELISA test
MELISA test for hypersensitivity to metals in sarcoidosis
Peripheral blood from sarcoidosis patients with occupational anamnesis that involves exposure to metals will be sent to MELISA Medica in Stockholm Sweden. The MELISA test will examine hypersensitivity to metals that can be related to the granulomatous response of sarcoidosis.
