Lupus Miliaris Disseminatus Faciei-A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Saadia A, Mati R, Amit H* and Omer L

Lupus Miliaris Disseminatus Faciei (LMDF) is a controversial and enigmatic entity. Facial granulomatous disorders include rosacea and perioral dermatitis which commonly overlap. LMDF is also a facial granulomatous disorder but is quite distinct from rosacea and perioral dermatitis. We report a case of LMDF, describe the clinical form and review the literature.

LMDF has unique and exclusive morphologic features. The diagnosis of LMDF may be difficult. This case is presented as a reminder for early diagnosis and appropriate systemic treatment.

We present a case of a 21-year-old man with facial and extra-facial lesions of LMDF.

LMDF is a rare chronic granulomatous eruption which usually involves the face. Early diagnosis and systemic treatment are essential to avoid scarring.
