At the 2-months follow-up visit, considering the fact that an adequate glycemic control and normal thyroid function status were obtained, the evolution was favorable with marked improvement of the annular plaques
, which were replaced by a postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG), also known as actinic granuloma and Miescher granuloma of the face, is an entity characterized clinically by chronic, persistent, sun-distributed, annular plaques
typically seen in older women with significant sun damage.
He had been suffering from multiple annular plaques

Multiple erythematous, squamous, annular plaques
of varying sizes are seen on upper arms and trunk.
On examination, the right half of the body was involved in the form of linearly arranged multiple discrete to coalescing hyper keratotic papules and annular plaques
along the blaschko's line, in a nevoid pattern.
Cutaneous examination showed multiple shiny, flat-topped, mildly erythematous, discrete and grouped papular lesions and annular plaques
with central atrophy, varying in size from 2-8 mm in diameter, distributed in a linear fashion on the medial aspect of the left knee, along with an ill-defined, hypopigmented oval patch in the central part on medial aspect of the knee joint (Figure 1).
(Figure 1) Annular plaques
present on the scalp resulted in patchy alopetic patches with no scaling or evidence of atrophy.
