The National Sarcoidosis Resource Center is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to providing support and information to individuals affected by sarcoidosis, their families, and any interested individuals. Sarcoidosis, a rare multisystem disorder of unknown cause, is characterized by the abnormal formation of inflammatory masses or nodules (granulomas) consisting of certain granular white blood cells (modified macrophages or epithelioid cells) in certain organs of the body. The granulomas that are formed are thought to affect the normal structure and, potentially, functions of the affected organ(s), causing symptoms associated with the particular body system(s) in question. Such granuloma formation most commonly affects the lungs. However, in many cases, other organs may be affected. Established in 1992 by an individual with sarcoidosis, the National Sarcoidosis Resource Center provides information to people throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. It maintains a registry of more than 15,000 affected individuals; provides referrals to physicians; assists in the formation of self-help groups; coordinates a networking program; and holds an annual "Sarcoidosis Awareness Day Celebration." In addition, the center conducts on ongoing study of the symptoms and demographics of individuals with sarcoidosis.
