Recently, dermoscopy has been demonstrated as an important A foreign body granuloma forms when the host immune system is unable to digest the foreign body, resulting in the accumulation of macrophages and histiocytes. As macrophages surround and isolate the foreign body, some of them will fuse to form multinucleated giant cells. T cells and fibroblasts also participate in this inflammatory response  The 585-nm pulsed dye laser is the treatment of choice for a variety of vascular lesions. 1 It uses the concept of selective photothermolysis to target the oxyhemoglobin within blood vessels, while minimizing collateral damage. The reddish-brown color and prominent telangiectasias of granuloma faciale suggested that it might be amenable to treatment with this laser

Granuloma annulare is a benign, chronic, idiopathic condition characterized by papules or nodules that spread peripherally to form a ring around normal or slightly depressed skin. Diagnosis is by clinical evaluation and sometimes biopsy. Treatment is with topical or intralesional corticosteroids, topical tacrolimus, cryotherapy, and phototherapy Granuloma faciale (GF) is an uncommon cutaneous disease of uncertain etiology that predominantly affects the face. Extrafacial lesions are rare. The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical and demographic features of a series of patients with extrafacial manifestations of GF who were diagnosed and treated at a single center over more than 5 decades. We performed a retrospective. Granuloma faciale (GF) is an uncommon inflammatory dermatosis that is characterized by one or several asymptomatic brown red nodules or plaques on the face and polymorphous dense dermal infiltrates with vascular damage [1, 2].GF is known to be extremely resistant to treatment, although some cases may resolve spontaneously in granuloma faciale.

It is a misnomer both clinically and histologically, as lesions occasionally can be present on the extrafacial sites, and granulomas are not seen on.
Granuloma faciale is a chronic condition; spontaneous remission is unusual. Lesions are usually asymptomatic, but treatment is needed to reduce disfigurement. It is notoriously resistant to treatment and, because of the rarity of the condition, there are no formal trials of therapy Secondly, because of its rarity of reporting of successful treatment of childhood disseminated granuloma annulare with topical tacrolimus only.

Granuloma annulare is not contagious. Risk factors. Granuloma annulare is occasionally associated with diabetes or thyroid disease, most often when lesions are numerous or widespread. It may, rarely, be related to cancer, especially in older people whose granuloma annulare is severe, doesn't respond to treatment or returns after cancer treatment Another type of light therapy, laser treatments, can also be helpful. Some cases of granuloma annulare can be stubborn. The first treatment you try may not work. For this reason, dermatologists use different treatments that can help clear the skin. While granuloma annulare is not an infection, an antibiotic may help be helpful for some people

Tacrolimus (FK-506) was administered at an initial dosage of 1 mg every 12 hours, and FK-506 concentration in the blood was monitored monthly. FK-506 blood concentration was controlled within 5 to 15 μg/l. After 6 months, the dosage of tacrolimus was reduced to 0.5 mg daily for another 2 months and then treatment was stopped Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, inflammatory skin disease where painful pustules or nodules become ulcers that progressively grow. Pyoderma gangrenosum is not infectious. Treatments may include corticosteroids, ciclosporin, infliximab, or canakinumab.. The disease was identified in 1930. It affects approximately 1 person in 100,000 in the population Granuloma annulare is a condition that does not necessarily need to be treated. The reason for this is because this condition is self-limiting and clears up on its own. However for the granuloma annulare to clear up on its own this could take up to two years.
