Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. In sarcoidosis almost all organs can be involved but the disease most often affects the lungs and intrathoracic lymph nodes.
Isolated extrapulmonary organs involvement occurs very seldom. We present two cases of sarcoidosis limited to upper respiratory tract - a young women with laryngeal sarcoidosis and recurrent throat pain and the women with the disease of the sinuses and pharynx and clinical symptoms of chronic sinusitis poorly responsive to conventional treatment.
