Abstract

We report a 53-year old man with symmetrical nonpitting edema, conjunctivitis, and acneiform eruptions on the face. Histopathological examination showed perifollicular lymphohistiocytic infiltration and telangiectasias in the upper dermis. Loosely aggregated non-caseating granulomas were scattered through the dermis; some of them were seen in the perifollicular regions. The patient was treated with fleroxacin (100 mg/day, orally) for two weeks with a marked reduction of both solid facial edema and periorbital edema.
