Abstract

GONCALVES, Rossana Ruth da Veiga et al. Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.4, suppl.1, pp.69-71. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000700017.

Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma is a rare granulomatous skin disease characterized histologically by phagocytosis of elastic fibers by multinucleated giant cells and clinically by annular patches with elevated borders and atrophic centers found mainly on sun-exposed skin. The pathogenesis of the disease is controversial. We report the case of a 44-year-old woman with classical clinical and histological findings of the disease whose condition improved when hydroxychloroquine was administered over a four-week period
