Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma, is a rare granulomatous disease characterized by annular erythematous plaques with central atrophy, which is generally observed in the sun-exposed areas of the skin. Actinic injury is thought to be involved in pathogenesis, yet its exact reason has not been elucidated. Elastolysis along with elastophagocytosis constitute its typical histopathological features. The disease is reported to show a tendency towards being observed in middle-aged women. In this paper, we presented a ten-year-old patient diagnosed with annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma.
