Infiltration of old scars by sarcoidal granuloma is not uncommon. However, the pathogenesis of scar sarcoid is not clear. Peculiar involvement of road traffic accident scars by granulomatous infiltrate but sparing of post operative scar, in our patient suggests that foreign body contamination is essential in the evolution of scar sarcoid. Scar sarcoid can have systemic involvement at the outset, in contradistinction to the earlier reports as illustrated in our patient. Corticosteroids are effective in the treatment of these patients.
