Although the therapeutic benefit of oral antimalarials in various types of sarcoidosis is well described, their reported use specifically in subcutaneous sarcoidosis (Darier-Roussy type sarcoidosis) is limited. We describe the cases of two patients with subcutaneous sarcoidosis treated with hydroxychloroquine, suggesting that it may represent an alternative first-line treatment for patients in whom steroid-sparing therapy is desired.
