Cutaneous Sarcoidosis-like Eruption Following Second Dose of Moderna mRNA-1273 Vaccine: Case or Relationship?

Diagnostics (Basel). 2023 Mar 29;13(7):1286. doi: 10.3390/diagnostics13071286.


Various adverse reactions to SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have been described since the first months of the vaccination campaign. In addition to more frequent reactions, rare reactions, such as sarcoidosis-like, rashes have been reported. We present a case of a 23-year-old woman with a rash on the chin and peribuccal region, which developed approximately 3 weeks after the administration of the second dose of the Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccine. We briefly discuss other reports in the literature.
