Abstract

Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic multisystem disease with various cutaneous presentations, and it is characterized by the presence of non-caseating granulomas In the affected organs. The specific manifestations are papules, plaques, nodules, ulcers and scar. We report here on a variant of sarcoidosis on a 71-year-old woman who showed an indurated plaque on the forearm. Her lesion's appearance was clinically similar to that of a morphea and the appearance of the lesion was unlike the commonly observed manifestations of sarcoidosis.
