Abstract

A 59-year-old woman with a subcutaneous nodule in the left cheek showed accumulation of 67Ga in the left cheek, bilateral pulmonary hilar lymph nodes and bilateral lower extremities. An operative specimen from the cheek nodule surrounded by cheek muscle showed non-caseating granuloma consistent with sarcoidosis. Although muscle involvement is quite common, nodulous sarcoidosis in the cheek muscle is rare.
