Sarcoidosis and Lyme Disease Support Group Australia is a voluntary organization established for sufferers, families and caregivers affected by sarcoidosis and Lyme disease. Sarcoidosis and Lyme Disease Support Group aims to bring fellow sufferers together to support each other and their families; provide and share information and experiences, acting as a forum to help those affected to understand the condition; support the medical profession in the early diagnosis and treatment of those with these diseases; support research on these diseases; and heighten awareness of these diseases in Australia. Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder 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 alter the normal structure of and, potentially, the normal functions of, the affected organ(s), causing symptoms associated with the particular body system(s) in question. Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Some studies have been conducted that suggest the possible connection between having Lyme disease and developing sarcoidosis.
