Abstract

After intracutaneous application (dermojet) of procaine polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) because of backpain in a 60-year-old woman, multiple brownish-red nodules developed at the injection site within a few days. The histology showed signs of a sarcoid granuloma. There was no clinical evidence for sarcoidosis in this patient. An allergic reaction of the granulomatous type is suspected.
