Lofgren’s syndrome is characterized by triad of Erythema Nodosum, hilar lymphadenopathy and polyarthralgia. [1] It is mostly seen as an acute form of sarcoidosis, in 35 % of such cases. In India sarcoidosis is rare condition and only 5-6% of such rare cases may present as Lofgren 's syndrome. Other possible causes ofLofgren 's may be infections and environmental factors as the disease tends to have increased incidence during spring season. [3] In this article we are reporting a rare case of Lofgren's with rarer presentation of Erythema Nodosum, polyarthritis, hilar lymphadenopathy and episcleritis, from India which was triggered by infection.
