Granuloma Annulare

Granuloma Annulare (GA) is a benign skin condition that may affect children or adults, and is more prevalent in females than in males. This disorder is usually self-limiting, and its cause is not completely understood. GA is sometimes associated with diabetes or malignancy, especially when found in older adults.

 

GA can present in different varieties, including localized, generalized, patch, perforating, and subcutaneous. It generally appears as red, brown, or skin-colored lesions, sometimes arranged in a circular fashion, or disseminated through the face, trunk, or extremities. Many of our guests experience resolution of the disease, but GA may persist for several years.

 

At Florida Skin Center the diagnosis of GA is usually done clinically and can be confirmed by biopsy.  Treatment, when desired, may consist of topical prescriptions, intralesional injections, systemic medications, and phototherapy. If Granuloma Annulare is a concern for you, please contact us for a consultation and we will gladly discuss diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options to better fit your needs.
