Cutaneous sarcoidosis presenting as a testicular mass.


Urologic involvement in sarcoidosis is rare. We report a patient who presented with a testicular mass and, shortly thereafter, manifested nasal lesions of the papular variant of cutaneous sarcoidosis. Histologic examination from both organ systems yielded sarcoidal granulomas. The patient was successfully treated using oral corticosteroids. Sarcoidosis continues to replace syphilis as "the great imitator of the 1990s," and clinicians must be increasingly aware of its variable presentations.
