The problem is relevant due to the substantial increase in the prevalence and incidence of sarcoidosis and its «juvenation». The lecture highlights the modern views on risk factors, pathogenetic mechanisms of the development and morphology of sarcoidosis as well as clinical, instrumental and laboratory criteria for diagnosing extrapulmonary sarcoidosis in children and the principles of its treatment.
Key words: sarcoidosis, noncaseating granuloma, extrapulmonary clinical manifestations, therapy.
