Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lupus miliaris disseminata faciei is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology, which mostly involves the face in young adults. Earlier attempts had been made to relate it to tuberculosis, rosacea, and sarcoidosis without any strong evidence. For the past few years it has been considered as a distinct entity by various authors and was given a new nomenclature, "facial idiopathic granulomas with regressive evolution" (FIGURE). We also support this new nomenclature and present a young man with facial idiopathic granulomas and scarring consistent with this diagnosis.
