Sarcoidosis – Subcutaneous Sarcoid

December 17th, 2011

Subcutaneous Sarcoid is a rare type of Sarcoidosis that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Subcutaneous Sarcoid clinically appears as indurated red nodules usually located on the arms, legs, chest and back.  The inflammation is located in the third layer of skin. the subcutaneous tissue.  Subcutaneous Sarcoid is also called Darier-Roussy disease.  Less than 5% of all patients with Sarcoidosis develop Subcutaneous Sarcoid.
