Heerfordt's syndrome — Mylae of Noosa) — the syndrome which is characterized by a combination of bilateral parotitis to a bilateral uveitis; sometimes is followed by defeat of a nervous system (a polyneuritis, an encephalomeningitis), and also respiratory tracts and limf, nodes.

Heer-fordtom is for the first time described in 1909 (Gh. F. Heerfordt). Occurs at mature age, at women more often than at men.

In a wedge, a picture bilateral painless increase in parotid glands (see Parotitis), defeat of a vascular path of eyes (see the Iridocyclitis, the Uveitis, Horioioit), fervescence is noted (sometimes to 38,5 °).

Treatment is carried out by corticosteroids, appointed febrifugal and anesthetics.
