The aim of the study was to assess the type and frequency of prevalence of cardiac symptoms in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis. MATERIALS AND


The study group consisted of 54 patients (21 female, 33 male), with biopsy-proven pulmonary sarcoidosis. Mean age was 45.85 +/-11.77 years. According to time passed from diagnosis of sarcoidosis patients were divided into 2 subgroups. Additionally, age, sex, left ventricular ejection fraction, cigarette smoking and comorbidities were analyzed. Course and stage of sarcoidosis were also included in the analysis.


The frequency of cardiovascular symptoms in the study group was 87.04%. 59.26% of patients reported chest pain, the same subjects reported dyspnoea. 48.15% of respondents reported heart palpitations, 33.33% pre-syncope states, 12.96% syncope, and 37.04% edema of lower limbs. There were no statistically significant differences in the incidence of analyzed symptoms, depending on the duration of lung sarcoidosis.


Patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis who report cardiovascular symptoms require further diagnostics.
