    Factors involved in the development of diaper-area granuloma of the aged.
    J Dermatol 2013 Dec 4;40(12):1038-41. Epub 2013 Dec 4.
    Department of Dermatology, Nara Hospital, Kinki University School of Medicine, Nara, Japan.
    An infant skin disease with clusters of nodules in the diaper contact area was reported as granuloma gluteale infantum. Recently, the number of elderly patients with this condition has increased, and it has been reported as diaper-area granuloma of the aged. These lesions are presumably caused by irritation from feces and urine. Read More

    A forgotten complication of diaper dermatitis: Granuloma gluteale infantum.
    J Family Community Med 2010 May;17(2):107-9
    Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, University of Dammam, Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
    Granuloma Gluteale Infantum (GGI) is a rare condition of unclear etiology,[1] presenting as asymptomatic cherry red nodules in the diaper area appearing in the setting of primary irritant contact dermatitis.[2] A 50 day old infant with GGI is presented to emphasize that the condition may be easily missed, and that it may result from the misuse of fluorinated topical steroids used to treat a rash in the diaper area. This is the first case reported from Saudi Arabia. Read More

    Jacquet erosive diaper dermatitis: a complication of adult urinary incontinence.
    Cutis 2008 Jul;82(1):72-4
    Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.
    Jacquet erosive diaper dermatitis is typically described as a severe irritant dermatitis of the perianal region. However, Jacquet erosive diaper dermatitis, perianal pseudoverrucous papules and nodules, and granuloma gluteale infantum/ adultorum have been regarded as discrete entities or all part of the same clinical spectrum, representing the result of chronic, severe, irritant contact dermatitis. We present a case of Jacquet erosive diaper dermatitis and a discussion of the clinical spectrum of diseases to which it belongs. Read More

    Erosive papulonodular dermatosis associated with topical benzocaine: a report of two cases and evidence that granuloma gluteale, pseudoverrucous papules, and Jacquet's erosive dermatitis are a disease spectrum.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 2006 Nov 1;55(5 Suppl):S74-80. Epub 2006 Sep 1.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Utah, USA.
    Granuloma gluteale infantum/adultorum, pseudoverrucous papules, and Jacquet's erosive diaper dermatitis are fairly uncommon manifestations of irritant contact dermatitis historically thought to be distinct clinical entities. Here we report two informative cases of an erosive papulonodular dermatosis in the genital and suprapubic area associated with topical benzocaine. We review granuloma gluteale infantum, pseudoverrucous papules and nodules, and Jacquet's erosive diaper dermatitis, and propose that these disorders may all be variants of genitocrural irritant dermatitis.

    Granuloma gluteale adultorum associated with use of topical benzocaine preparations: case report and literature review.
    J Cutan Med Surg 2002 May-Jun;6(3):221-5. Epub 2002 May 13.
    Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
    Background: Granuloma gluteale infantum is a skin disorder of controversial etiology manifested clinically by oval reddish-purple granulomatous nodules on the gluteal surfaces and groin areas of infants. Similar granulomas are noted in adults and the elderly and are referred to as granuloma gluteale adultorum and diaper area granuloma of the aged, respectively. Occlusion from diapers, paper napkins, plastic pants, detergents, starch, powder, halogenated steroids, candidal infection, and urine and feces are postulated as possible etiologies. Read More

    Hemilateral distribution of papular lesions on the buttock histologically resembling granuloma gluteale infantum.
    J Dermatol 2001 Apr;28(4):231-3
    Department of Dermatology, Faculty for Clinical Research, Kumamoto National Hospital, 1-5 Ninomaru, Kumamoto 860-0008, Japan.
    Two Japanese girls had small grouped papules on the buttocks without diaper dermatitis or bacterial or fungal infection. These granulomas spontaneously regressed over two weeks, even though oral antibiotics were administered. We discuss this variant of granuloma gluteale infantum of Tappeiner et al. Read More

    Granuloma gluteale infantum: a case report.
    Pediatr Dermatol 2000 Mar-Apr;17(2):141-3
    Department of Dermatology, Sint Franciscus Gasthuis, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
    Granuloma gluteale infantum is a benign disorder with the clinical appearance of "granulomatous" nodules involving the diaper area. It is an uncommon disorder considered a complication of primary irritant diaper dermatitis. A 6-month-old boy with reddish-purple oval nodules located on the right inguinal fold and right buttock diagnosed as granuloma gluteale infantum is presented. Read More

    Granuloma gluteale infantum.
    Australas J Dermatol 1996 Feb;37(1):57-8
    Westmead Hospital, Westmead, New South Wales, Australia.
    Granuloma gluteale infantum is an uncommon disorder, the pathogenesis of which remains unclear. Occlusion is a common factor and irritant napkin dermatitis is a frequent association. A six month old female infant with mild napkin dermatitis treated only with a dusting powder is presented. Read More

    Perianal pseudoverrucous papules and nodules after surgery for Hirschsprung disease.
    J Pediatr 1994 Dec;125(6 Pt 1):914-6
    Department of Dermatology, Hospital General Vall D'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain.
    We report two patients with Hirschsprung disease in whom severe diarrhea and a distinctive diaper dermatitis developed after delayed ileoanal anastomosis. The perianal papulonodular lesions cleared in months or years without specific treatment after resolution of the diarrhea. These perianal pseudoverrucous papules and nodules represent a peculiar form of primary irritant diaper dermatitis, distinct from Jacquet erosive diaper dermatitis and granuloma gluteale infantum.

    Granuloma gluteale infantum: case report and review of the literature.
    Pediatr Dermatol 1990 Sep;7(3):196-8
    Division of Dermatology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio 78284-7876.
    Granuloma gluteale infantum, a benign granulomatous eruption involving the gluteal region, histologically shows a nonspecific dermal inflammatory infiltrate composed of neutrophils, lymphocytes, histiocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils. It is important to recognize this condition, as it may clinically simulate a neoplastic process. It arises as a complication of primary irritant diaper dermatitis, however, and typically resolves without treatment. Read More

    [Granuloma gluteale infantum: ultrastructural study (author's transl)].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 1980 Jul;107(7):631-4
    Intracytoplasmic structures resembling rickettsia-like bodies are observed in the dermal macrophages of a case of granuloma gluteale infantum. The cells which contained these bodies show severe necrotic changes. No yeast and nor crystalline structures were observed in the dermal infiltrate. Read More

    Diaper area granuloma of the aged.
    Arch Dermatol 1978 Mar;114(3):382-3
    Nine women, aged 77 to 89 years, suffered from diaper dermatitis, and many granulomas were seen in the genital or gluteal region restricted to the lesion of dermatitis. Because these granulomas resembled granuloma gluteale infantum of Tappeiner and Pfleger, we propose to call this condition diaper area granuloma of the aged. Read More
