SARS-CoV-2 infection is a pandemic that affects predominantly upper airways and lungs. It may lead to reactivation of known inflammatory rheumatic diseases and/or initiation of various granulomatous disorders. Necrotising sarcoid granulomatosis (NSG) is a rare condition that can be confused with malignancy, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, and sarcoidosis. Herein we reported the development of NSG following a SARS-CoV-2 infection which mimicked granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
