Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a chronic systemic disease of unknown etiology characterized by non-caseating granulomatous inflammation of various organs. Nasal involvement of sarcoidosis is rare. Typical symptoms are nonspecific for sinonasal sarcoidosis and include nasal obstruction, postnasal drip, headache and recurrent sinus infection. We experienced a woman who had sarcoidosis involving the inferior turbinate. She was treated with en block resection, systemic steroids and immunosuppressive agents. So, we report this case with the review of literature.
