FZ Elfatoiki, W Soussi, S Chiheb, L Jabri, H Benchikhi

Abstract


We report a skin localization of systemic sarcoidosis, which presented with lesions that resemble porokeratosis of Mibelli. Skin biopsy showed noncaseating sarcoidal granuloma. Whereas cutaneous sarcoidosis is present in up to one-third of cases and may present with a wide variety of lesions, our presentation is uncommon. Partial remission was obtained with  hydroxychloroquine and prednisone
