Granuloma annulare (GA) is classified as localized, generalized/disseminated, subcutaneous, and perforating types. [] Key Method We clinically and histologically diagnosed eight cases of GAD. The patients were also investigated for the diagnosis of associated diseases. The treatment included topical corticosteroids, antihistamines, Calcipotriol/Betamethasone, Tacrolimus 0.03%, Pentoxifylline, Hydroxychloroquine. Therapeutic response was assessed one month and three months after hospitalization. Our patients…

The treatment of the 3 patients with disseminated granuloma annulare led to improvement of clinical appearance without significant differences between the two treatment schemes, and further research is needed to establish the optimal therapy for the patients with DAG.

Successful treatment of generalized granuloma annulare with adalimumab

The case of a 64 year‐old woman who demonstrated resolution of recalcitrant, generalized granuloma annulare (GA) following treatment with adalimumab provides further evidence that tumour necrosis factor‐α inhibitors may be a treatment option for patients with recalcitrants, generalized GA.

Pentoxifylline as a treatment for granuloma annulare

The characteristics of reported cases of scarassociated AFX, including age group, anatomic site and clinical course, support the notion that scar- associated AFX has a similar biology to classic AFX (see Table S1).
