PURPOSE: The etiology of sarcoidosis is unknown, but probably involves genetic predisposition and environmental triggers. Inhalation of particulates from the WTC collapse on 9/11/2001 may be one such trigger. Characterization of the nature and course of this sarcoid variant, with known trigger and onset dates, may shed light on the natural history of sarcoidosis in general.
