Skin manifestation occurs in approximately 25% of patients with sarcoidosis and is often the first symptom of the disease. The availability of skin biopsy material is helpful in establishing the early diagnosis. Cutaneous sarcoidosis is characterized by clinical polymorphism and therefore its diagnosis may cause dilemma. The systemic sarcoidosis should be excluded in every patient with cutaneous sarcoidosis, because systemic involvement has a significant impact on course, treatment and prognosis of the disease.

Key words: cutaneous sarcoidosis, erythema nodosum, noncaseated granulomas
