Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown origin, in which non-caseating granulomas (small inflammatory nodules) are found in the affected organs. Cutaneous involvement occurs in 25% of cases with a wide range of clinical presentation. The onset of scars is unsual although clinically characteristic of cutaneous sarcoidosis. Most patients with scar sarcoidosis have a systemic disease. It is reported the case of a 65 year-old woman that developed scar nodules 20 years after she had had surgical procedures without systemic manifestations. It is worth mentioning the importance of investigating sarcoidosis with inflammatory alterations in praevia scars.
