The Association between ESR and CRP and Systemic Hypertension in Sarcoidosis

Figure 1

Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve to detect the best cutoff value for ESR and CRP in the prediction of systemic hypertension in sarcoidosis patients. ESR had an AUC value of 0.795 (95% CI 0.692–0.897, ). A cutoff value for ESR of 30 mm/hr yielded a 62% sensitivity and 80% specificity for predicting systemic hypertension in sarcoidosis patients. With regard to CRP, the AUC value is 0.644 (95% CI 0.518–0.769, ). A cutoff value for CRP of 3 mg/L yielded a 37% sensitivity and 95% specificity for predicting systemic hypertension in sarcoidosis patients.
