A Case for Diagnosis (LichenoidSarcoid?). Presented by Dr.DavidSatenstein.
The patient was previously presented before the New York Dermatological Society on Oct. 25, 1932.
Microscopic findings since the previous presentation showed lichenoid sarcoid. The tuberculin test gave negative results with dilutions of 1: 1,000,000 and 1: 100,000; with dilutions of 1: 10,000 and 1: 5,000, it was one plus. The Wassermann test of the blood was negative. Urinalysis showed occasional white blood cells. The patient gave a history of having taken cinchophen.
Dr.HermannFeit: I have seen several cases of lichenoid sarcoid in Copenhagen. Clinically, this case does not agree with those. I am under the impression that lichenoid sarcoid is an eruption like disseminated lupus, except for the lichen planus-like appearance. In this case, nearly every lesion is skin-colored, giving the impression of granuloma annulare.
Dr.Joseph L. Morse: The case I reported
