Childhood Granulomatous Periorificial Dermatitis is an acneiform facial rash that affects the periorificial area in children. The clinical aspectare asymptomatic 1-3 mm papules of, monomorphic, erythematous or hypopigmented in periorificial areas - mouth, nose and eyes. It's a benign and self-limited disease that heals spontaneously without scarring and specific therapy. Differential diagnoses include perioral dermatitis, granulomatous-rosacea, sarcoidosis, and lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei. We present the case of a 4-year-old boy, presenting papules in periorificials areas. Due to its low incidence and low number of publications we report the present case.
