Childhood granulomatous periorificial dermatitis (CGPD) is a disease presenting most commonly in prepubertal children as yellow-brown papules limited to the perioral, perinasal and periocular regions. The condition is benign, self-limiting and is not associated with systemic involvement. We herein report a case of an 11-year-old Korean boy with multiple, asymptomatic, monomorphic, red-to-yellow-colored papular eruptions on the perioral areas of 7-month duration. Histopathological examination revealed upper dermal and perifollicular granulomatous infiltrate. After using oral erythromycin 500 mg daily for 1 year, the condition resolved completely without leaving a scar.
