Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Granuloma annulare (GA) is a common dermatosis of unknown etiology, which, in 10%-15% of cases, presents as the generalized subtype. GA has been associated with infections, vaccines, and neoplasias. We describe a case of generalized GA arising in a 50-year-old man with a diffuse infestation by Sarcoptes scabiei.
