Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF), also termed acne agminata or acnitis, is a rare granulomatous skin disease mainly affecting the central area of the face.
Moreover, in acnitis the lesions are not consistently related to hair follicles.
The diagnosis of acnitis should be considered in every case where papular eruption is encountered on the face with a tuberculoid histology but without any evidence of mycobacterium tuberculosis.
