A number of cases of sarcoid have been described in recent literature in which there seem to have been definite lesions of the same characteristics. Such cases have been classified as multiple benign sarcoid of Boeck and of Darier-Roussy by Finnerud. Goeckerman and others. Since Goeckerman's article with a review of the literature and report of seventeen cases was published, several other cases have been reported, including those of Daub and Menagh reported in the American Journal of Roentgenology and those of Kirkland and Morton, in the Journal of Radiology. While the findings in all cases have many of the characteristics of tuberculosis, the tuberculous origin has not been definitely proved. The following report of a case offers some additional, though not conclusive, evidence of the tuberculous origin of this condition.
