Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei
Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei is an eruption consisting of discrete yellow-brown to pink dome-shaped papules on the face and elsewhere that show a characteristic granulomatous histology.
Most common in young adults, the disease can be progressive for years.
Lesions heal with hyperpigmented scars.
Some believe that this condition is a variant of rosacea.
- Tetracycline and minocycline may be effective.
- Nevertheless dapsone or oral steroids may be required.
