Granuloma annulare is a frequent dermatosis with 4 clinical subtypes. Among these, the subcutaneous granuloma annulare (SGA) is an uncommon subtype with an unknown etiology (but associated with multiple contributing factors) that generally evolves to spontaneous resolution. A correct diagnosis of this type of granuloma annulare is important because it can enable proper treatment of this condition and not cause the patient undue stress and anxiety. We describe a woman with SGA associated with a cat bite.
