Abstract
Heerfordtʼs syndrome is a rare manifestation of sarcoidosis and is defined as a combination of facial palsy, parotid swelling, and uveitis, associated with a low-grade fever. We report a case of Heerfordtʼs syndrome presenting with a high fever and increased serum tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) levels. The patient had facial palsy, parotid swelling, uveitis, and swelling of the right supraclavicular and hilar lymph nodes. Corticosteroid therapy was initiated, and her symptoms soon resolved completely, in tandem with a decrease in TNF-α serum levels.
