Abstract

ROCHA, Diego Santos et al. Sarcoidosis simulating syringomas. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.2, pp. 309-312. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000200020.

Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. The skin is commonly affected. Cutaneous manifestations can mimic other diseases and autoimmune disorders. The dermatologist plays a critical role in elucidating the clinical diagnosis and assisting other specialists in the investigation of a systemic disease. We report a patient with typical cutaneous manifestation of sarcoidosis with pulmonary involvement.

Keywords : Granuloma; Sarcoidosis; Skin manifestations.
