Cutaneous sarcoidosis may occasionally be mistaken and treated for leprosy. We present two cases of sarcoidosis of the skin which were initially treated as leprosy based on the histopathological features. Histological study in one patient showed perineural and perivascular granuloma adding on to the diagnostic confusion. It is very important for the clinicians to consider sarcoidosis as a possible diagnosis in a patient with clinical features that are not typical of leprosy. Histopathology along with appropriate in -situ techniques can help in arriving at an appropriate diagnosis.
