Abstract

SOUZA, Fernanda Homem de Mello de et al. Simultaneous occurrence of ulcerated necrobiosis lipoidica and granuloma annulare in a patient: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.5, pp. 1007-1010. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000500023.

Simultaneous occurrence of granuloma annulare and necrobiosis lipoidica is quite rare. There are seven reported cases in the literature, but only one presenting ulcerated necrobiosis lipoidica. We report a 39-year-old male with histopathologically confirmed granuloma annulare and ulcerated necrobiosis lipoidica, without diabetes mellitus.

Keywords : Diabetes mellitus; Granuloma annulare; Necrobiosis lipoidica; Skin ulcer.
