Acquired ichthyosis in adults may reflect internal disease, viz. internal malignancy, especially Hodgkin’s lymphoma or sarcoidosis. We report a patient who developed ichthyosiform sarcoidosis over a year after completion of 6 cycles of combination chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s disease. To our knowledge, the development of ichthyosiform sarcoidosis after chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s disease has not been described earlier.
