A diagnosis of lupus pernio (cutaneous sarcoidosis) without systemic involvement was made.
Specific lesions are those that histologically display noncaseating granulomas, which manifest clinically as maculopapules, plaques, lupus pernio, scar-sarcoidosis, and subcutaneous sarcoidosis.
Si dejamos enfriar los pies, van a producirse alteraciones vasculares en esta zona, como el eritema pernio o sabanon, e incluso congelaciones, mientras que si los calentamos corriendo, no solo evitaremos esto, sino que la vasoconstriccion y vasodilatacion producidas en los pies van a repercutir en todo nuestro organismo (16), produciendo un masaje general en todo el aparato circulatorio y en especial en el circulatorio de todo el bajo vientre, que tan influido esta por este mecanismo reflejo.
[53] Two clinically important and easily recognisable skin lesions are erythema nodosum and lupus pernio. Erythema nodosum is the hallmark of acute sarcoidosis and the lesion consists of raised' red' tender bumps or nodules on the anterior aspects of the legs.
Lupus pernio is associated with the worse prognosis both in systemic disease and the more chronic cutaneous lesions.30
Cutaneous lesions seen in sarcoidosis include papules, nodules, plaques, angiolupoid, ulcerative, and verrucous lesions, hypopigmented macules, lupus pernio, erythroderma, and granulomas in scars or areas subject to chronic trauma (3).
Esses problemas podem ser agravados em trabalhadores suscetiveis, portadores de eritema pernio ou fenomeno de Reynaud (3).

El eritema pernio se clasifica en primario o idiopatico y secundario.
Six months ago the patient was diagnosed with pernio erythema (cutaneous distal lesions of her upper and lower limbs with erythema, pain and petechiae at the distal phalanges worsened in cold exposure).
