Scar Sarcoidosis after Blepharoplasty: A Case Report

  • 1Department of Dermatology, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University, Seongnam, Korea


Sarcoidosis is a chronic multi-organ disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by the development of non-caseating granulomas. Scar sarcoidosis is a cutaneous manifestation of sarcoidosis that originates in old cutaneous scars. Sarcoidosis may develop in scars that occur after surgery, vaccination, cosmetic tattoos, and herpes zoster infection. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is the most popular aesthetic facial surgery performed in the Asian population. Despite the large number of blepharoplasty procedures performed over the last century, relatively few reports have described scar sarcoidosis involving a blepharoplasty scar. We report a rare case of sarcoidosis that originated in a post-blepharoplasty scar, together with a literature review. Scar sarcoidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients who present with post-blepharoplasty changes in an old scar.
