J Cutan Med Surg. 2011 Nov-Dec;15(6):340-3 Authors: Mullan E, Green P, Pasternak S Abstract BACKGROUND: Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is a benign condition characterized by a papular eruption located in the central face. Histologic studies of the papules show granulomatous infiltrates with central necrosis. The condition is self-limited and usually resolves within 1 to 2 years yet can be cosmetically debilitating, given the location and potential for scarring. Granulomatous periorificial dermatitis similarly affects the face with granulomatous lesions and may overlap clinically with LMDF. CONCLUSION:This report highlights the challenge in differentiating and treating uncommon granulomatous facial dermatoses.PMID: 22202509 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?tmpl=NoSidebarfile&db=PubMed&cmd=Retrieve&list_uids=22202509&dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
