Dacryoadenitis and Sarcoidosis

CS is a 54-year-old woman who had a history of uveitis 8 years previously. She had a mild chronic cough and had a “normal” chest x-ray in the last year. A-scan examination of the lacrimal gland showed bilaterally enlarged lacrimal glands with areas of medium internal reflectivity (Fig. 121). Sarcoidosis was included in the differential diagnosis and she was referred for a chest CT that revealed enlarged perihilar lymph nodes consistent with sarcoidosis. A bronchial endoscopic biopsy confirmed the diagnosis.
