Granulomatous periorificial dermatitis (GPD) is a distinctive form of perioral dermatitis. It is a condition of unknown etiology, characterized by monomorphic, small, papular eruptions around the mouth, nose, and eyes, and granulomatous pattern on histopathology. It is common in prepubertal children of both sexes and persists for several months. It is rarely reported in adults. We report a case of 34-year-old female who presented with erythematous to pigmented plaques with scaling involving the perioral, paranasal region, and forehead. Histopathological examination demonstrated upper dermal and perifollicular granulomatous infiltrate. Patient was treated with topical pimecrolimus and oral doxycycline.
