Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is a chronic granulomatous disease, which tends to be located on the central part of the face. Its typical histological image is one of epithelioid granulomas with caseous necrosis. Its association with epidermal cysts has been described on few occasions in literature. We present a case of LMDF associated with epidermal cysts in a female Caucasian patient. This association suggests that the rupture of the epidermal cysts may be related to the appearance of LMDF. However, there are probably other factors that may also contribute to its pathogenesis.
