Introductio: Sarcoidosis is a chronic multi-organ disease. Scar sarcoidosis is a rare but specific cutaneous presentation. Most patients with scar sarcoidosis suffer from systemic involvement especially lung disease.

Case Report: We present here a 77 year-old-woman with sarcoidal infiltration in burn scars that she had acquired 30 years ago. She was treated with systemic steroids which led to regression of cutaneous lesions.

Conclusion: Scar sarcoidosis should be suspected in occurrence of new lesions in burn scars

Keywords: scar, sarcoidosis, burn scar
