Abstract:   (529 Views)
Purpose: To introduce the case of unilateral periorbital edema secondary to sarcoid parotiditis.
Case Report: A 26-year-old female was referred to Labbafinejad Medical Center because of right hemifacial and periorbital edema for last month. The result of a skin biopsy (1 month ago) from her arm showed an unspecified granulomatous inflammation. In addition, she had a new annular lesion on her left arm when she was referred. PPD test was positive with 29 mm induration. After a biopsy of the parotid, gland sarcoidosis was confirmed and she responded brilliantly to oral prednisone in 2 days and all symptoms and signs disappeared in a month.
Conclusion: Sarcoidosis can present itself as periorbital edema.
Keywords: Granuloma Annulare, Granulomatous Inflammation, Periorbital Edema, Sarcoidosis
