Abstract

JARDIM, Márcio Martins Lobo; UCHIYAMA, Juliana; KAKIZAKI, Priscila  and  VALENTE, Neusa Yuriko Sakai. Dermoscopy of granuloma faciale: a description of a new finding. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2018, vol.93, n.4, pp.587-589. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20187017.

Granuloma faciale is a rare, chronic dermatologic disorder, which mainly affects the face. Recently, dermoscopy has been demonstrated as an important ancillary tool on the clinical diagnosis of facial dermatoses. We report two cases of granuloma faciale with yellow areas on dermoscopy that was not yet described in the literature, corresponding to abundant hemosiderin on histopathological examination.

Keywords : Dermoscopy; Facial dermatoses; Hemosiderin.
