Dermatologic manifestations may include the following:

  • Erythema nodosum

  • A lower-extremity panniculitis with painful, erythematous nodules (often with Löfgren syndrome)

  • Lupus pernio (the most specific associated cutaneous lesion)

  • Violaceous rash on the cheeks or nose (common)

  • Maculopapular plaques (uncommon)
