Abstract

Granuloma annulare is a benign, self-limiting dermatosis of unknown cause, and is characterized by necrobiotic dermal papules that often assume an annular configuration. A generalized form is common in the fifth to seventh decades of age, however, it is uncommon in childhood, especially in infancy. We report an interesting case of generalized grannuloma annulare which occurred in a 60 day-old boy. Dermatologists should include generalized granuloma annulare in the differential diagnosis of infants with generalized papular eruptions.
