The treatment of pulmonary sarcoidosis is based on several factors. These include changes in pulmonary physiology, presence of extra-pulmonary disease, and symptoms. Several immunosuppressive agents have been studied and recommendations regarding the utility of these different agents have evolved.

Non immunosuppressive agents also play a role in the therapy of pulmonary sarcoidosis patients. These include treatments for pulmonary hypertension, infection, and fatigue.
