Answer

Treatment in patients with pulmonary involvement is as follows:

  • Asymptomatic patients may not require treatment

  • In patients with minimal symptoms, serial reevaluation is prudent

  • Treatment is indicated for patients with significant respiratory symptoms

  • Corticosteroids can produce small improvements in the functional vital capacity and in the radiographic appearance in patients with more severe stage II and III disease
