Papular umbilicated granuloma annulare is usually localized and is relatively asymptomatic. The generalized condition is rarely reported in children and tends to respond less well to treatment than the localized form. We report the first instance of generalized papular umbilicated granuloma annulare in an 11-year-old boy, which cleared following bath psoralen plus ultraviolet A therapy.
