Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized histologically by noncaseating granulomas in affected organs. Cutaneous manifestations of the disease such as papules, nodules, plaques, and ulcerations occur in approximately 25% of the patients. Sarcoidosis can present with multiple different morphologies including annular, psoriasiform, ichthyosiform, morpheaform, and verrucous. In this study, we report a 30-year-old African American man with a history of spinal tuberculosis as a child and slowly enlarging verrucous nodules that appeared at the age of 5 years. After an extensive infectious disease evaluation, the diagnosis of verrucous sarcoidosis was established with the presence of noncaseating granulomas and a completely negative workup for infectious etiologies.
