• A 40-year-old woman had erythematous, papular lesions on both periorbital areas. Histologic examination disclosed the presence of palisading granulomatous lesions. To our knowledge, periorbital granuloma annulare is extremely rare. Our experience demonstrates the importance of obtaining biopsy specimens from periorbital papules and considering granuloma annulare in the differential diagnosis of such lesions.
