Abstract

Scar sarcoidosis is a cutaneous manifestation of sarcoidosis arising on old cutaneous scars. We report four cases of scar sarcoidosis after blepharoplasty. Lesions were seen to manifest as erythematous, firm, and non-tender nodules diffusely palpable along an upper eyelid scar. Histologically, numerous non-caseating granulomas with multinucleated giant cells were seen. No other evidence of systemic sarcoidosis was observed in any patient. Although rare, sarcoidosis may occur in an eyelid scar after a blepharoplasty. Therefore, scar sarcoidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients presenting with unusual nodules in blepharoplasty scars.
