Scar changes may be an important clue in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Any patient complaining of changes in scars, areas of trauma, or venipuncture sites, should be evaluated for sarcoidosis. In patients already suspected of having the disease, these areas should not be overlooked as an easy source of tissue specimens for histopathologic confirmation of the diagnosis.
