The development of scar sarcoidosis at the site of desensitization injections.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Leicester Royal Infirmary.


Tender nodules may develop at the site of injection of allergen extracts. Some cases can be related to the aluminium contained in the preparation. We report a case where scar sarcoidosis developed at the site of desensitization injections. At presentation, there were no other cutaneous signs of sarcoidosis; systemic signs only developed 2 years later. We suggest that sarcoidosis be considered as a cause of granulomata developing at sites of desensitizing injections, particularly when aluminium is not involved.
