Pediatr Dermatol. 2013 Feb 26; Authors: Rodriguez-Caruncho C, Bielsa I, Fernandez-Figueras MT, Ferrándiz C Abstract Childhood granulomatous periorificial dermatitis (CGPD) is a condition included in the spectrum of rosacea and perioral dermatitis that affects prepubescent children. It is characterized by papular eruptions located around the mouth, nose, and eyes that histopathologically show a granulomatous pattern. We report a 9-year-old girl with CGPD who required treatment with an oral antibiotic. Oral metronidazole was administered because of its known efficacy in adult rosacea and its safety in children. The patient responded well to this therapy, showing resolution of the lesions.PMID: 23437890 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/23437890?dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
