Successful treatment of two individual cases of generalized granuloma annulare with amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and a combination of doxycycline and pentoxifylline.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Aug 15;24(8). Epub 2018 Aug 15.

University of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois.

Granuloma annulare is a benign inflammatory skin disease potentially related to a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to the dermis. Generalized granuloma annulare (GGA) manifests as diffuse skin-colored to erythematous annular or nummular plaques affecting at least the trunk and either upper or lower extremities, or both. GGA is resistant to many therapeutic modalities, making it difficult to treat. Read More

The role of biologics in the treatment of chronic granuloma annulare.

Int J Dermatol 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Background: Granuloma annulare (GA), a benign inflammatory skin disease, is considered a Th1-type delayed hypersensitivity reaction. Localized GA is likely to resolve spontaneously, whereas disseminated GA (DGA) may persist for decades and can be resistant to treatment. Biologics including TNF-α inhibitors have been proposed and utilized as salvage therapy for GA and other related diseases, interstitial granulomatous dermatitis (IGD), and actinic granuloma (AG).

Dermatology Administration, Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, 3400 Civic Center Boulevard, 7th Floor, South Tower, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA. Electronic address:

Inflammatory granulomatous dermatitides include cutaneous sarcoidosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, and reactive granulomatous dermatitis. The etiopathogenesis of these disorders is not well understood; but the T helper 1 response mediated by interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interleukin (IL) 1, 2, and 6 and the T helper 17 response mediated by IL-17 play a role. These inflammatory granulomatous disorders often have cutaneous manifestations in addition to extracutaneous manifestations or associations with systemic diseases. Read More

Granuloma multiforme: an uncommon differential for leprosy.

Trop Doct 2018 Oct 4:49475518803191. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

4 Associate Professor, Department of Pathology, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, India.

Granuloma multiforme (GM) is a chronic granulomatous skin condition which is clinically characterised by annular lesions mainly over sun-exposed areas and histologically by focal necrobiosis and histiocytic granulomas. Its significance lies in the fact that it can clinically resemble tuberculoid leprosy and hence it can be missed. Here, we report a case of GM from India in a 55-year-old female agriculturist, with multiple asymptomatic large annular rings of papules over the photo-distributed areas. Read More

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Services, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland.

Cutaneous granulomas without detectable infectious etiology rarely occur in children and adults with primary immunodeficiency disorders. These cutaneous granulomas are primarily seen in combined variable immunodeficiency, ataxia-telangiectasia, and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) and can emulate the reaction patterns seen in sarcoidosis and granuloma annulare. To date, the literature has described only six cases of non-infectious cutaneous granulomas in SCID. Read More

Dermatoscopy of Granulomatous Disorders.

Dermatol Clin 2018 Oct 2;36(4):369-375. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Medical Area, Institute of Dermatology, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

Although diagnosis of cutaneous granulomatous disorders (CGDs) is usually suspected based on morphologic findings, localization, and anamnestic data, clinical differentiation from each other and from similar dermatoses may be challenging. Recently, dermatoscopy has been demonstrated to be a useful tool for assisting the recognition of several CGDs. This article provides a current overview of the dermatoscopic features of the main noninfectious and infectious CGDs, including sarcoidosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, rheumatoid nodules, and leishmaniasis.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors and the development of granulomatous reactions.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Aug 6. Epub 2018 Aug 6.

Department of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPIs) have emerged as a frontline treatment for a growing list of malignancies. Disruption of the negative regulatory immune checkpoints by ICPIs has been associated with many immune-related adverse events. Granulomatous reactions, such as sarcoidosis-like reactions, granulomatous panniculitis, granuloma annulare, and granulomatous dermatitis, are uncommon but increasingly recognized immune-related adverse events seen in patients treated with ICPIs.

Granuloma Annulare-Like Granulomatous Reaction to Red Tattoo Pigment.

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;22(6):618-620. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

1 Department of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Cutaneous reactions to tattoos can be attributed either to trauma or to the exogenous pigment introduced into the skin. Red pigment is associated with a high sensitizing potential and is the most frequently implicated pigment inducing various types of histological reactions. Herein, we describe a patient with red tattoo pigment-induced granulomatous dermatitis that histologically revealed a very rare granuloma annulare-like reaction. Read More

Granuloma Annulare Skin Lesions in a Case of Sarcoidosis.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2018 Mar-Apr;9(2):117-119

Department of Dermatology, Base Hospital, Delhi Cantt, New Delhi, India.

We report the case of a 32-year- old man with a short 3-week history of erythematous, annular, non scaly plaques on palmar and dorsal aspect of his hands, who was concurrently diagnosed as a case of sarcoidosis on the basis of findings of generalized lymphadenopathy and radiological and histological features of pulmonary sarcoidosis. His skin biopsy was consistent with the diagnosis of granuloma annulare. Sarcoidosis and granuloma annulare are two separate diseases, which involve the skin and have a mononuclear histiocytic cellular reaction, although their aetiology is still unknown. Read More

Usefulness of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of subcutaneous granuloma annulare.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 May 24;35(3):e200-e201. Epub 2018 Mar 24.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario de Cabueñes, Gijón, Asturias, Spain.

Subcutaneous granuloma annulare is a benign inflammatory disorder that primarily affects healthy children and manifests as a rapidly growing, painless, nonmobile mass, most commonly located in the leg. The current case highlights the sonographic appearance of subcutaneous granuloma annulare. Ultrasound color Doppler is a helpful noninvasive imaging test that may allow physicians to confirm the diagnosis of subcutaneous granuloma annulare and avoid unnecessary medical procedures.

b UConn Health Department of Dermatology , Farmington , CT , USA.

Background: Management of generalized granuloma annulare (GGA) poses challenges for both patients and dermatologists. Currently, there are no established first-line therapies for GGA and the available therapeutic modalities are based on individual case reports and a few small case series. Further, there are limited publications assessing the efficacy of methotrexate in treating GGA. Read More

Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma: a "visible" diagnosis.

Dermatol Online J 2017 Jul 15;23(7). Epub 2017 Jul 15.

Department of Dermatology, Centro Hospitalar do Porto, Portugal.

Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG) is a rare granulomatous skin disease of undetermined cause, characterized by annular plaques with raised erythematous borders in sun-exposed skin. The typical histologic features are dermal infiltration by multinucleated giant cells, elastin degeneration, and elastophagocytosis. The authors describe a clinical case of AEGCG, which exhibited an excellent response to hydroxycloroquine. Read More

Pruritic arthropod bite-like papules in T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukaemia and chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Jun 9;43(4):449-453. Epub 2018 Feb 9.

Department of Dermatology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukaemia (T-LGLL) is a clinically indolent mature T-cell neoplasm characterized by a monoclonal population of CD3+ CD8+ cytotoxic T cells, which usually presents as neutropenia, anaemia and thrombocytopenia. Chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (CMML) is a clonal haematopoietic disorder with features of both a myeloproliferative neoplasm and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Patients with CMML exhibit a persistent peripheral blood monocytosis in addition to myelodysplastic features. Read More
