Morpheaform Sarcoidosis is a rare manifestation of cutaneous Sarcoid that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Morpheaform Sarcoidosis clinically appears like morphea in which the overlying skin is very indurated and scar like with a pink/red/purple hue. The histology of this variant resembles Sarcoid and has no microscopic features of morphea. Morpheafrom Sarcoidosis is most commonly seen in African American females. Some patients respond to treatment with antimalarial drugs.
