Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a chronic granulomatous disease, involving multisystem, confirmed by the presence of non-caseating granulomas. Sinonasal involvement in sarcoidosis is rare and difficult to diagnose since the symptoms of nasal obstruction and rhinitis are nonspecific. The diagnosis of sarcoidosis begins with clinical suspicion, followed by with imaging, and finally confirmed with tissue biopsy. In this study, we report a case of sarcoidosis of the nasal septum, which was early confirmed by a biopsy of the nasal septum and hilar lymph node.
