The authors describe a case of cicatricial alopecia associated with papular lesions on the face and trunk with four years of evolution. The diagnosis of sarcoidosis was confirmed by histopathological examination. During the follow-up the patient developed lung lesions. Cicatricial alopecia is a rare complication of sarcoidosis. It is often confused, in clinical findings, with other dermatoses, among them discoid lupus erythematosus and lichen planopilaris.
