Involvement of the parotid gland with sarcoidosis occurs in 1-6% of the patients. In rare cases parotitis represents the initial clinical manifestation of sarcoidosis. In that case, the otorhinolaryngologist is usually the first to be confronted with this disease and may enable an early diagnosis and therapy. In the present paper a rare case of isolated sarcoidosis of the parotid gland is reported. The results obtained by different examination techniques are demonstrated and their relevance for the diagnosis of sarcoidosis is discussed.
