On the other hand, granulomatous rosacea
is defined as a variant, and it is characterized by sclerotic papules/nodules.
Isotretinoin is not typically used in rosacea, and it is most commonly used in the treatment of severe forms (granulomatous rosacea
, rosacea conglobata or fulminans); it is administered in minidoses of 2.5 mg/day for about 6 months, but with close monitoring of its side effects (eye disturbances, angiogenesis stimulation, changes in serum transaminases).
Polymorphism R702W in NOD2/CARD15 is specifically associated with childhood granulomatous rosacea .

(8-10) Histologically, rosacea demonstrates intrafollicular and perifollicular lymphocytic inflammation with or without granulomas (granulomatous rosacea
) or neutrophils (pustular rosacea).
Granulomas were detected in the 1 skin biopsy but it was interpreted as granulomatous rosacea
* Granulomatous rosacea
. This is a variant of rosacea characterized by uniform papules on the face.
Patients with granulomatous rosacea
will need to be treated with the higher end of the tetracyclines--either minocycline or doxycycline (a known photosensitizer--and for a longer time period, she said.
Previously thought to be a tuberculid but now believed to be a variant of granulomatous rosacea
.6 Actually, LMDF may be considered a distinct entity.5,6 The etiology remains unknown.1-3,6 Although, it is a self-limiting disease, the treatment options are tetracyclines, isotretinoin, dapsone and prednisolone.1-3 Clofazimine 100 mg three times weekly for 8 weeks has also shown successful results.1-3
Lymphocytoma cutis, granulomatous rosacea
, leishmaniasis, leprosy, syphilis and follicular mucinosis were considered in the differential diagnosis.
