• An unusual annular erythema occurred in a 6-month-old girl. Recurrent annular lesions appeared on the face and back, but annular lesions persisted for ten months on the distal extremities. Eleven months after the eruption appeared, it resolved completely without recurrence. This seemingly unique condition is compared with other cases of chronic annular erythemas, especially those previously described as erythema gyratum perstans.
