Abstract

Granuloma faciale (GF) is a rare cutaneous disorder categorized as a localized form of small-vessel vasculitis. Clinically, it manifests as single or multiple well-demarcated red-brown plaques, papules and nodules, nearly always confined to the face. Herein, we report a 39-year-old man with multiple red-brown infiltrated plaques on face and extrafacial lesions on back, shoulders and both arms. Skin biopsy revealed typical histopathological findings of GF. The patient failed to respond to pulsed dye laser but intralesional triamcinolone combined with cryotherapy led to an acceptable response.
