Ann Dermatol Venereol. 2023 May 30:S0151-9638(23)00033-9. doi: 10.1016/j.annder.2023.02.005. Online ahead of print.


AIMS: The primary objective was to study long-term outcomes in children with idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma (IFAG). The secondary objectives were to describe the clinical polymorphism of this entity, the different therapeutic options, and the occurrence of rosacea in this population.

METHODS: We selected patients with a clinical diagnosis of IFAG seen in two different hospitals in Normandy between March 2016 and February 2021, and we collected clinical and therapeutic data from computerized medical records. A remote consultation based on recent photographs was performed to collect new data, and the children's parents were asked to complete a questionnaire between February and August 2021.

RESULTS: Ten children were included in this study. Nine patients presented with a single red to purplish nodule. One patient presented multiple papulopustular plaques. IFAG healed spontaneously without major sequelae, and this outcome was not influenced by any treatments. During follow-up, two patients developed childhood rosacea.

CONCLUSION: Although some clinical heterogeneity exists, early diagnosis and follow-up of IFAG is necessary to avoid unnecessary topical or systemic antibiotic treatments that do not shorten the disease course. IFAG appears to be a possible mode of entry for infantile rosacea.
