Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disease of an unknown origin and it is characterized by the presence of noncaseating epitheloid cell granulomas in multiple organs. Herein we report on a case of cutaneous and pulmonary sarcoidosis that was associated with interferon alpha treatment for hepatitis C. A 39-year-old man, a former intravenous drug user, presented with several erythematous papules on both antecubital areas. The histopathologic finding of a skin biopsy showed noncaseating granuloma. The mediastinal and axillary lymph nodes were enlarged on chest X-ray and computed tomography. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of cutaneous and pulmonary sarcoidosis that was associated with interferon treatment in the Korean dermatologic literature.
