Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause that primarily involves the
lungs. Extrapulmonary sarcoidosis is seen in more than 30% of patients. We report a case of a
29-year old man presenting with bilateral enlargement of the parotid glands combined with fever,
discrete dyspnea, and fatigue. Histopathology from the parotid gland indicated sarcoidosis. An
18F-FDG PET/CT performed to visualize the organ extent demonstrated increased 18F-FDG uptake
in the parotid glands and in bilateral mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes. The patient was diagnosed
with sarcoidosis.
