Lupus Miliaris Disseminatus Faciei With Isolated Axillary Involvement.

J Cutan Med Surg. 2016 Mar-Apr;20(2):153-4

Authors: Kim WB, Mistry N

BACKGROUND: Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is a chronic, granulomatous inflammatory disorder, commonly localized to the face.
OBJECTIVE: To present an unusual manifestation of LMDF and review the literature.
METHODS: We document a 41-year-old woman with LMDF with isolated axillary involvement. A literature review was conducted using Pubmed, Medline, Embase, and Google Scholar for similar cases using search terms lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei, LMDF, acne agminata, and acnitis.
RESULTS: Extrafacial LMDF without concomitant facial involvement is rare; there has been only 1 other report of LMDF with exclusive axillary involvement to date. In addition, we report the successful use of doxycycline monohydrate combined with topical tacrolimus in the treatment of LMDF.
CONCLUSION: Physicians should note that LMDF can occur in body sites other than the face and should be aware of the available treatment options to manage this condition.
