Abstract

Background: Psoriasiform lesions are an established, but rare, manifestation of sarcoidosis. Only 0.9 percent of patients with cutaneous sarcoidosis develop this form of the disease. Observation: The authors present a case of a 61- year-old woman with a history of pulmonary sarcoidosis who presented to their dermatology clinic with thick plaques resembling psoriasis. Biopsy of one of the lesions revealed sarcoidal granulomas in association with psoriasiform changes. Conclusion: Psoriasiform lesions are a rare manifestation of sarcoidosis. The authors theorize that the coexpression of TNF-in both entities is a possible explanation of the psoriasiform expression of sarcoidosis.
