In a group of 15 patients affected with localized or diffuse granuloma annulare the carbohydrate metabolism was studied by the standard glucose tolerance test and the glucose cortisone test (prednisone glycosuria test). The latter test showed that 5 cases in this series had a reduced tolerance of glucose in a significant percentage of subjects with granuloma annulare, particularly in the generalized type of the disease.
