Less frequent reactions at injection sites include vascular thrombosis, mucinosis, dermal and SC sclerosis, necrosis, ulceration and rarely, lupus erythematosus-like lesions, sarcoidal granulomas, erythema nodosum, an acute septal panniculitis with neutrophils, lobular lymphocytic panniculitis and lipoatrophy.
Other described histological reactions at injection sites include allergic contact dermatitis, lipogranulomas, local necrosis, sterile and infectious abscesses, necrotizing, necrobiotic and sarcoidal granulomas, cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia, lupus profundus-like and morphea-like reactions.

Although there is no pathognomonic finding to differentiate a sarcoidal granuloma from a granuloma of another cause, some features favor a granuloma being sarcoidal.
Giant cell arteritis can be differentiated from necrotizing sarcoidal angiitis by the lack of granulomatous inflammation in the myocardium outside of the coronary arteries, the lack of granulomatous inflammation in other organs outside of the arteries, and the demographics of the patient because giant cell arteritis is primarily a disease of elderly white women, unlike sarcoidosis.

Noncaseating granulomas of sarcoidal type can develop in the lung and hilar lymph nodes in association with bronchogenic carcinoma and presumably represent an immune response of the host to the carcinoma.
