Chapter 82. Sarcoidosis


Tiny papules of sarcoidosis tend to enlarge, but usually do not become nodules. Sometimes those papules are so numerous and set so closely that a plaque results; in other instances the papules may be arranged in an annulus. The papules of sarcoidosis tend to persist, as does the disease itself. New lesions may appear over the course of years, but, as a rule, old lesions do not disappear.
