Granuloma annulare

granuloma annulare

Granuloma anulare may reveal a high variability of dermoscopic findings. Vessels may be dotted, short linear or linear arborizing, while background color displays various combinations of red, white and yellow. In certain cases, pigmented structures may be detected. The observation that granuloma anulare rarely exhibits features of other granulomatous skin diseases, such as necrobiosis lipoidica or sarcoidosis, might help clinicians rule out the latter conditions.[1]
