† Cutaneous involvement is present in approximately 25% of patients with sarcoidosis. A large variety of morphologic patterns has been well described; ulcerative lesions are rare. A 30-year-old black man had generalized cutaneous granulomas, many of which demonstrated superficial ulceration. The exudative quality of these lesions was probably secondary to recurrent bacterial infection. Use of oral antibiotics, prednisone, and hydroxychloroquine sulfate controlled his disease activity.
