Can Lyme disease trigger sarcoidosis?

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, typically the lungs and lymph glands. The exact cause of sarcoidosis is unknown. But some researchers believe it may be a type of autoimmune disease, involving an abnormal immune response. Several studies suggest that an “infection or exposure to something in the environment can trigger the immune system to overreact,” according to the American Lung Association.

Now, a recent case study from the Netherlands indicates that Borrelia burgdorferi may, in some instances, be one of those infectious agents capable of triggering sarcoidosis.

“This case suggests that an infection with B. burgdorferi, the causal agent of Lyme disease, could act as a trigger for sarcoidosis,

Sarcoidosis most commonly affects your lungs,

How Sarcoidosis Affects Your Body

If you have sarcoidosis, the increased inflammation in your body may cause flu-like symptoms such as night sweats, joint pain and fatigue. This inflammation can lead to scar tissue in your lungs while also making them function more poorly. Many people with sarcoidosis also have skin and eye damage in addition to lung disease. Occasionally, those with sarcoidosis develop granulomas and inflammation in their hearts, which can trigger abnormal heart rhythms and heart failure.

it can cause shortness of breath and loss of lung function and sometimes permanently damage your lungs. In very few cases, sarcoidosis can be life-threatening if it causes heart or severe lung disease. If your symptoms last more than 2 years despite treatment, your disease is considered chronic, and the symptoms may worsen youruality of life

Unusual Case Infection as possible Trigger of Sarcoidosis; 18-03-2019

A study reporting the case of a sarcoidosis patient infected with the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi highlights the importance of maintaining an increased awareness about potential infectious conditions, such as Lyme disease, in patients with new onset of sarcoidosis.

The case study, “Systemic Sarcoidosis Associated with Exposure to Borrelia burgdorferi in a 21-Year-Old Man,” was published in the European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine.

Previous studies have shown associations between sarcoidosis and B. burgdorferi, a Lyme disease-causing bacterial species. Lyme disease is an infectious disease spread by ticks.

Now, a team in The Netherlands reported the case of a patient diagnosed with systemic sarcoidosis and with a recent infection by B. burgdorferi.
