Granuloma faciale (GF) is a rare chronic dermatosis with still unknown etiopathology, which usually presents a solitary, asymptomatic, smooth reddish-brown to violaceous plaques or nodules on the face. Various therapeutic approaches, including topical application of corticosteroid or tacrolimus and removal with laser, cryotherapy and surgery have been attempted; however, the outcome has been inconsistent. Herein, we report a case of perinasal nodular GF who repeatedly underwent surgical excisions after the failure of laser treatment. Read More

One of the pathogenic causes of cutaneous inflammatory pseudotumors is chronic localized fibrosing leukocytoclastic vasculitis (CLFLCV), a vasculitic reaction pattern seen in granuloma faciale (GF), a localized vasculitis, and erythema elevatum diutinum (EED), a generalized vasculitis. Patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) are at risk for a diverse spectrum of cutaneous neutrophilic dermatoses such as EED. Herein, we report a 74-year-old man who presented with a large ulcerative, fungating tumor affecting the right flexor ankle caused by CLFLCV. Read More

Recent Findings: Some histopathological and clinical features, such as papillary dermal edema, perivascular C3 deposition, clinically evident edema, and lesions above the waist, may point out renal or gastrointestinal involvement in Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). HSP associated with familial Mediterranean fever differs from typical isolated HSP by showing no deposits of IgA, much younger age, and location of the lesions on the face or the trunk. Read More

Clinically, GF appears as single or multiple, slowly growing, reddish-brown papules, nodules or plaques which may be cosmetically unpleasant. Its pathogenesis is unknown and GF is notoriously resistant to treatments. Read More

Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign tumor that may be subdivided in a non-aggressive form and an aggressive form. In aggressive forms, tumor size and high recurrence risk need large surgical resections. In order to minimize surgical morbidity, especially in children, medical treatments acting on the tumor proliferation are currently being assessed: steroids (triamcinolone), anti-osteoclastic drugs (calcitonine, alendronate, denosumab), anti-angiogenic drugs (interferon α).

Background: Eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis (EAF) and granuloma faciale (GF) share several histopathologic features, including eosinophil-rich inflammation, microangiitis, and progressive fibrosis. Concurrent presentation of EAF and GF suggests a pathogenetic link between them.
Objectives: To identify histologic findings that tell them apart and construe the pathogenetic mechanisms behind each morphologic variable, 14 immunohistochemical markers were used to study the cells subpopulations in 14 cases of GF and 3 cases of EAF. Read More

Granuloma faciale is a rare dermatosis of chronic course, benign, usually asymptomatic, first described in 1945 by Wingley.

Eosinophilic skin diseases, commonly termed as eosinophilic dermatoses, refer to a broad spectrum of skin diseases characterized by eosinophil infiltration and/or degranulation in skin lesions, with or without blood eosinophilia. The majority of eosinophilic dermatoses lie in the allergy-related group, including allergic drug eruption, urticaria, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and eczema. Parasitic infestations, arthropod bites, and autoimmune blistering skin diseases such as bullous pemphigoid, are also common. Read More

Granuloma faciale (GF) is a rare cutaneous condition of unknown origin, that usually presents as one or more brown-purple papules, plaques and/or nodules, localized mostly on the face, although extrafacial lesions can also occur. Eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis (EAF) is regarded as the mucosal counterpart of GF. Histologically, it has been described as a persistent leukocytoclastic vasculitis, with a dense polymorphous inflammatory infiltrate in the superficial and mid dermis, typically sparing the subpapillary dermis, the so called grenz zone.

Cherubism is a rare genetic disorder characterized by extensive growth of a bilateral granuloma of the jaws, resulting in facial disfigurement. Cherubism is caused by gain-of-function mutations in the SH3BP2 gene, leading to overactivation of nuclear factor of activated T cells, cytoplasmic 1 (NFATc1)-dependent osteoclastogenesis. Recent findings in human and mouse cherubism have suggested that calcineurin inhibitors might be drug candidates in cherubism medical treatment. Read More
