Abstract

Granuloma annulare (GA) is a benign, usually self-limited dermatosis of unknown cause, characterized by necrobiotic dermal papules that often assume an annular configuration. Disseminated GA was reported in association with numerous systemic disorders including thyroid autoimmune disease, human immunodeficiency virus infection, and diabetes mellitus. Among the haematologic malignancies, malignant lymphoma is among the most common. Disseminated GA has a tendency to present with atypical clinical features, especially when associated with malign lymphoma or AIDS. In this report, we described a 38-year-old female patient with disseminated GA in association with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). To our knowledge, it is the second reported case which is associated with AML.
