Despite numerous research on the pathogenesis of sarcoidosis still has not been defined a factor responsible for triggering an immune response that leads to the development of a full picture of the disease. Raised part of progenitor cells, in addition to numerous non-specific factors, requires further research and clinical assessments. Similarly, conditional mutual sarcoidosis and tuberculosis, has not been fully confirmed. Participation in these reactions of heat shock proteins indicates the real possibility of the coexistence of changes in the inflammatory process. Interesting seems to be the role of vitamin D, because its deficiency can cause inadequate regulation of activated T cells and delay the removal of bacterial antigens from the body.
