In the last few years the clinical conception of sarcoid has undergone considerable modification. An increasing number of cases have occurred in which the histologic picture has agreed in general with that described by Boeck,1 although they have presented variable clinical pictures. The case which forms the basis of this report is unusual in its clinical manifestations. The patient was presented at a meeting of the New York Dermatological Society,2 and the diagnosis of ``disseminate sarcoid'' was accepted without reservation. If sarcoid is to be considered a histologic concept, then there is no question regarding the diagnosis. A review of the literature has failed to reveal a similar case.
