The Sarcoidosis clinic at Masih Daneshvari Hospital is recognized as the referral for Sarcoidosis research in Iran which is a designated center for expertise in the treatment of Sarcoidosis. The Sarcoidosis research center of NRITLD is led by

Dr. Atefeh Abedini who is a nationally recognized physician for her expertise in Sarcoidosis.

On the other hand, the research team of our group is conducting plenty of valuable researches on different aspects of Sarcoidosis.

 

Our goals:

  • Promotion of public health by increasing the patients’ awareness regarding all aspects of Sarcoidosis.
  • Improving the sarcoidosis patients quality of life by conducting regular follow-up program.
  • Conducting research studies in the most recent issues of Sarcoidosis.

 

Since Sarcoidosis often affects more than one organ, patients may need to see more than one type of physicians; therefore we try to expand our team by improving our collaboration with other physicians.  
To this end, the annual Sarcoidosis Scientific Conference is organized by Dr. Abedini at the Sarcoidosis Research department in Masih Daneshvari Hospital.
This year, the fourth session of this conference was held in Farhikhtegan Hospital during two days from 10/5/98 to 11/5/98.

 

During the conference, lectures by prominent professors and numerous panels in different fields including dermatology, pulmonology, neurology, rheumatology, cardiology, ophthalmology... were present. There have also been discussions about new biologic treatments in the fields of rheumatology and cardiology. The new treatments of pulmonary arterial hypertension in sarcoidosis and the application of artificial intelligence in interpretation of CXR were mentioned.

 

Workshops of the usage of ultrasound and nebulizer in Sarcoidosis were held with the presence of many participants including specialists, scientists and medical students.
