Although acquired ichthyosis has been associated with a number of systemic illnesses, an association with sarcoidosis has rarely been reported. We report two patients with acquired ichthyosis of the lower extremities whose diagnosis of cutaneous sarcoidosis was established by histologic examination. Systemic involvement in both patients included ocular and pulmonary disease. A diagnosis of sarcoidosis must be considered when a patient presents with acquired ichthyosis.
