The authors' report a case of a 26-year-old female. In 1996, and 1997 she underwent cosmetic lip augmentations (polimetyl metacrylat and silicone). After a six-year symptomfree period sudden swelling of the lips developed and red-brown papules and subcutaneous nodules appeared in the scars of various body parts (permanent make-up, tattoos, umbilical piercing). The clinical features, radiological signs and histology proved the diagnosis of systemic sarcoidosis. Systemic corticosteroid treatment was introduced. After 4 months of treatment the pulmonary and clinical symptoms showed regression. To be able to suspend the systemic treatment the silicone implant was removed.
