Abstract

Objectives: The IgG4-related disease often mimics different malignant diseases. We presented a case of IgG4-related disease associated with lesion in nasal cavity, lung and kidney which is easily misdiagnosed as nasal carcinoma with multiple metastases.
Method: Single case report.Results: The patient was finally diagnosed as IgG4-related disease under the examination of IgG4 in the nasal tissue and serum.
Conclusion: IgG4-related disease has possibility to exhibit the nasal mass accompanied by multiple pulmonary and renal nodules which mimic malignant tumors with multiple metastases in different organs. The doctors should attach much importance to the diagnosis of IgG4-related disease compared to the other nasal diseases.
