A 53-year-old woman presented with plaque-like lesions on the upper and lower lids of both eyes including the tear trough. To confirm the diagnosis, incisional biopsy of one of the lesions was done. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis to be sarcoidosis, with typical noncaseating granulomatous changes. Systemic evaluation revealed hilar lymphadenopathy. She was treated with oral steroids, and the lesion had completely resolved by 3 months. Sarcoidosis of the eyelids is a rare condition and may present as the first manifestation. An early biopsy can help confirm diagnosis and avoid systemic morbidity.
