Sarcoidosis always remains a diagnostic challenge due to its great imitating potential. Propensity to involve important organ systems such as lung points toward the importance of detailed evaluation and follow-up at regular intervals. It can present with a myriad of morphological forms. Isolated cutaneous involvement of sarcoidosis presenting as granuloma annulare (GA) like lesions have rarely been reported in children. Herein, we report a child with cutaneous sarcoidosis presenting as asymptomatic annular plaque on the face resembling GA without any systemic involvement. Our case has novelty from several aspects: presentation during childhood, isolated facial involvement, and morphological resemblance with GA.
