Sarcoidosis


Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unknown aetiology that is characterized by the presence of non-caseating granulomas. It is rare in children and more typically affects young adults. This chronic, progressive, systemic disorder may involve almost any organ or tissue, including the skin, lungs, lymph nodes, liver, spleen, eyes, and small bones of the hands and feet. The most typical cutaneous lesions with specific aetiology are firm flesh-coloured red or yellow-brown papules that appear on the face (nares, nasolabial folds and eyelids). The papules are frequently arranged in an annular or serpiginous pattern.
