Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease involving multiple systems. Cutaneous involvement is present in 25% of patients. A 42-year-old woman presented with itchy skin lesions on her face for 5 years duration. She was found to have annular and discoid plaques with prominent overlying telangiectasia. A biopsy from the plaque was suggestive of sarcoidosis. On further evaluation, she was found to have both pulmonary and ocular involvements. Annular sarcoidosis is a rare variant of cutaneous sarcoidosis. We report this case to highlight this rare variant of sarcoidosis and discuss the various cutaneous manifestations of sarcoidosis.
