Granuloma Annulare


What is Granuloma Annulare?

Granuloma annulare is a benign, usually self-limited condition of unknown cause.

It usually consists of bumps or lumps in the skin most often less than a quarter of an inch in diameter, which tend to be arranged in a ring-like distribution under the skin.  Although it may appear at any age, it occurs primarily in children and young adults and affects women more commonly than men.  A number of treatments are used, but their effectiveness is difficult to measure because this condition often spontaneously clears.  Recurrence and flares are also very frequent.
