The combination of low grade fever with parotid enlargment and eye uveitis and facial nerve palsy should alert us to the possibility of Heerfordt-Waldenstrom syndrome which is one of the presentations of Sarcoidois.

The biggest confusing differential diagnosis would be Sjögren's syndrome as these may be patients frequently fave fever, parotid enlargment, joint, and eye disease.

However, the presence of hilar lymphadenopathy and the Bell's palsy are clear distinguishing features of this special sarcoid presentation.
