Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous systemic disease of unknown etiology. Besides the landmark pulmonary lesions, extrathoracic manifestations of the disease can also occur. We report the case of a 53-year-old woman with an obscure swelling of both submandibular compartments. The radiological and pathohistological evaluations confirmed the uncommon diagnosis of sarcoidosis of the submandibular compartment. The tumor in each compartment consisted of a huge lymph node conglomerate respectively displacing the submandibular gland. The major salivary glands and the thorax were not involved.
