Methotrexate vs Azathioprine in Second-line Therapy of Sarcoidosis.


Comparing the effect of second-line therapy in sarcoidosis shows that both methotrexate and azathioprine have significant steroid-sparing potency, a similar positive effect on lung function, and comparable side effects, except for a higher infection rate in the azathioprine group.
