Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and medical history, they will perform a physical examination that will help check if the lymph nodes are swollen and if there are skin lesions. You will also require blood and urine tests, imaging studies such as chest x-rays, EKG, MRI, CT scan, echocardiogram, vision, and pulmonary function tests.
In addition, if deemed necessary, they will require tissue biopsies. Treatment is based on controlling the symptoms of the affected organs, either with corticosteroids or drugs that suppress the immune system, specific rehabilitation therapies, surgery, and in more severe cases, organ transplant.
