The term pyodermite froide du visage was first used by Léauté-Labrèze et al1 in the French literature. Characterized by an inflammatory benign nodule resembling a cold abscess on the face, it has been seen exclusively in children. During the last 10 years, 14 cases have been seen in our pediatric dermatology unit. All cases were similar and suggested a similar entity. The evolution was benign in all cases. We propose the designation idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma (IFAG) as an international name for this disorder.
