Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to apply the MELISA test, that diagnose hypersensitivity to metals, in Sarcoidosis patients with occupational exposure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Sarcoidosis Other: MELISA test

Detailed Description:
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.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 10 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
