[successful treatment of granulomatous rosacea with dapsone].

Hautarzt. 2013 Apr;64(4):226-8

Authors: Ehmann LM, Meller S, Homey B

Granulomatous rosacea is an uncommon variant of rosacea. It is characterized by disseminated, red-brown papules and nodules especially in periocular and centrofacial locations. This form of rosacea causes considerable distress among patients because of the inflammatory facial lesions and represents a therapeutic challenge. A 62-year old man with granulomatous rosacea failed to improve with systemic doxycycline. Systemic isotretinoin and corticosteroids produced only a temporary reduction in cutaneous findings. Finally, systemic treatment with dapsone resulted in remission of the skin lesions and long-term stabilization.
