Granuloma annulare (GA) is a benign granulomatous dermatosis. Clinically, it has been classified into localized, generalized, subcutaneous, macular, erythematous, and perforating types. Generalized GA (GGA) is an unusual pattern of GA reported mostly in adults aged 50 years or over and children aged about 10 years. Occurrence in infants is very rare and few cases of papular GGA have been reported in infants. We report a case of annular pattern of GGA in a 3-month-old infant. This is the first case report of annular pattern GGA in an infant.
