Granulomatöse periorifizielle Dermatitis der Kindheit

G. Wagner, C. Rose, M. M. Sachse


CASE REPORT: A 14-year-old patient of African ancestry presented with multiple papules in the perioral, perinasal and periocular areas. Histopathology showed sarcoidal granulomas.\n\nDIAGNOSIS: After exclusion of systemic sarcoidosis, the diagnosis of childhood granulomatous periorificial dermatitis was made.\n\nTHERAPY: Topical treatment with erythromycin resulted in complete regression.\n\nCONCLUSION: Childhood granulomatous periorificial dermatitis is mainly observed in dark-skinned children of African, Caribbean, or Asian origin. The nosological position of the dermatosis is controversial. Originally classified as sarcoidosis, childhood granulomatous periorificial dermatitis is now generally regarded as a special form of perioral dermatitis.
