abstract

  • Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei is a rare chronic, asymptomatic papular eruption, most commonly affecting the central face, including the eyelids. Our 2 patients presented with the typical clinical findings of small papular lesions in which histopathologic examinations disclosed granulomatous inflammation with necrosis associated with inflamed hair follicles. Except for its description as acne agminata by Duke-Elder in 1974, to the authors' knowledge, this condition has not been reported previously in the ophthalmic literature.
