1/3. Isomorphic response after saphenectomy in a patient with granuloma annulare.

    Physical trauma has been reported as an etiologic factor of granuloma annulare, resembling a Koebner phenomenon. Moreover, granuloma annulare frequently arises at the same location of a previously healed, unrelated skin disease, mainly herpetic infection. These data seem to suggest that granuloma annulare might be a peculiar pattern of skin reaction to different stimuli, either physical or biologic, in predisposed subjects. In the case reported herein, the onset of a typical lesion of granuloma annulare at the site of saphenectomy might be explained as the result of an aberrant wound healing process, with release, by keratinocytes and/or langerhans cells, of lymphocyte-derived chemotactic cytokines, capable of promoting the development of the granulomatous lesion.

2/3. Congenital subcutaneous granuloma annulare.

    granuloma annulare is a palisading granulomatous skin disease which may be generalized, localized, perforating, or subcutaneous. Subcutaneous granuloma annulare is self-limiting, affecting infants and children, with typical postnatal onset. Here we report a patient with congenital clinical manifestations.

3/3. Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma in an infant: improvement after treatment with oral tranilast and topical pimecrolimus.

    Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG) is a rare granulomatous skin disease of unknown origin that is characterized clinically by annular patches with erythematous borders and hypopigmented centers and histologically by loss of elastic fibers and elastophagocytosis. We report a case of AEGCG in an 8-month-old boy that was successfully treated with oral tranilast and topical pimecrolimus (Elidel 1.0% cream).
