Sarcoidosis Presenting as Lymphedema

Arch Dermatol. 1974;109(4):543-544. doi:10.1001/archderm.1974.01630040049012

A 32-year-old black woman developed lymphedema of the legs that persisted for almost 11 years before cutaneous and systemic manifestations of sarcoidosis became apparent. Lymphedema as the presenting manifestation of sarcoidosis is unusual but interesting and, to the best of our knowledge, has not been previously documented.
