Sarcoidosis is a chronic, multisystemic, non-caseating granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. Nasopharyngeal involvement is very rare in sarcoidosis. The objective of this report was to evaluate a rare involvement of sarcoidosis. This report includes a case of nasopharyngeal sarcoidosis. A 51-year-old female with nasopharyngeal sarcoidosis was treated as sarcoidosis, and she was better. Nasopharyngeal involvement is very rare in sarcoidosis but it must be kept in mind.
