Idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma-A diagnostic challenge in pediatric dermatology.

Pediatr Dermatol. 2018 Apr 06;:

Authors: Borok J, Holmes R, Dohil M

Idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma is a distinct, benign lesion that presents in very young children and is characterized by a painless facial nodule that usually appears on the cheek. It is typically characterized by a prolonged course but heals spontaneously or in response to antibiotic treatment. The challenge is to diagnose this entity correctly, ideally based on clinical acumen, to avoid surgical intervention with facial sutures and the resultant scarring and unnecessary treatment interventions. In this article, we discuss three cases of idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma to raise awareness and highlight the diagnostic challenges and possible link to childhood rosacea.
