Granuloma faciale is a rare dermatosis that appears in adulthood. It most often occurs on the face, but may appear anywhere on the body. Extrafacial lesions on the scalp, trunk, upper and lower extremities may arouse diagnostic uncertainty. Histologic differential diagnosis includes Sweet’s disease, insect bites, erythema elevatum diutinum, and angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia. Here we describe two cases with different clinical presentations to call attention to atypical onset which may mislead diagnosis.
