Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disease that is characterized by non-caseating granulomas. Besides the lung as classical site of involvement, extrapulmonary manifestations are common, for example cervical lymph nodes or the salivary glands. The aim of this investigation is the analysis of the long-term course of glandular symptoms with a focus on persisting sicca symptoms.
