Cutaneous manifestations of sarcoidosis frequently respond to medical management. Occasionally, however, this problem will reappear with the discontinuation of medication and ultimately result in the scarring and disfigurement of the patient’s skin. Such a patient was treated with radiation therapy and had considerable improvement in her acute disease.
