Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC), a disease belonging to the poorly characterized category of 'figurate erythemas', has been associated with a variety of conditions, such as connective tissue diseases, infections, neoplasms and drug reactions. Here we report a case of EAC associated with sarcoidosis, the first;case in the literature to our knowledge. EAC was the sole sign of the granulomatous disease process, which was diagnosed by means of appropriate investigations only after the patient reported the sudden resolution of a long-standing sensitization to perfumes and parabens. Steroid treatment for sarcoidosis improved the patient's condition, and restored the allergic response to these substances.
