Abstract

Sea urchin granuloma is a chronic granulomatous skin lesion caused by injury with sea urchin. Two types of sea urchin reaction have been noted: immediated and delayed. It has been known to form granuloma in most cases of delayed reaction histopathologically. However, 30% of cases are non-granulomatous inflammation. We describe two cases of delayed skin reaction by sea urchin. One showed a predominant inflammatory reaction with features of non-specific chronic inflammation. We recommend to use other name for delayed reaction of sea urchin rather than 'sea urchin granuloma'.
