Parotid gland sarcoidosis with renal failure
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology. Although any organ can be involved in sarcoidosis, significant renal involvement is rare, mostly due to nephrocalcinosis. Renal impairment in the absence of nephrocalcinosis is uncommon and is usually due to glomerulonephritis or granulomatous pathology in the interstitium. Bilateral parotid swelling with renal impairment, as a presenting feature of sarcoidosis, as in this case, has never been reported before.
