Sarcoidosis is a chronic idiopathic disorder characterized by the accumulation of mononuclear phagocytes with the formation of noncaseating granulomas in multiple organs. Cutaneous involvement occurs in 20-25% of cases and specific and nonspecific lesions are observed. We reported a rare case of umbilicated papular sarcoidosis with pulmonary involvement.
