Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei with extrafacial involvement in a 17-year-old white girl.

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.
