The WASOG stands for World Association for Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders. The topics WASOG is focusing on are interstitial lung diseases (ILD). Many ild (e.g. sarcoidosis) are part of a larger systemic problem, where the lung may be a minor target; others (e.g. idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)) are nearly exclusively a lung problem from the beginning. Thus, the future lies as a branch midway between pneumology and internal medicine, but it is clear that currently the WASOG has its own experts, journal, society and patients.
