    Objective: To determine the clinical and histopathologic features of all lesions diagnosed as lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei via biopsy over the past 16 years at a single institution. Clinical features reviewed included age of patient, location and number of lesions, duration, description of primary lesion, size, and suspected clinical diagnosis or differential diagnosis. Histopathologic features reviewed included presence of caseation necrosis, depth of granuloma, presence of lymphocytic infiltrate, disruption of hair follicles, and presence of multinucleated giant cells. Methods: The records of 10 patients (mean age, 50.4 years; range, 6 to 79 years) with characteristic histologic features of lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei were reviewed and the histopathologic findings and clinical features were analyzed. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-emb.. View More»
