To the Editor:

We appreciate the comments by Dr Vorselaars and colleagues on our article in CHEST1 and congratulate them on completing their chart review. Their review adds to an emerging hypothesis-generating data pool on the association between sarcoidosis and thromboembolic phenomenon. We look forward to seeing results from future studies aimed at deciphering this apparent relationship.
