In the past two years, two guidelines and a clinical statement on sarcoidosis were published. This was about time, with the last international guideline for sarcoidosis dating from 1999.

The European Respiratory Society published a clinical practice guideline on treatment of sarcoidosis and the American Thoracic Society a clinical practice guideline on diagnosis and detection of sarcoidosis. In addition to these guidelines, the British Thoracic Society published a clinical statement on pulmonary sarcoidosis, which covers both diagnosis and management. In this talk I will review the different guidelines /statements, including the underlying evidence of the recommendations and discuss differences and similarities. Furthermore, I will briefly touch on unmet needs and new developments in the treatment of sarcoidosis.
