• Two girls demonstrated waxing and waning predominantly facial eruptions. Clinically as well as histologically, the lesions are consistent with lymphocytic infiltrate to Jessner and Kanof and constitute the first reported childhood cases. Although primarily a disease of male adults, this entity should be included in the differential diagnosis of facial plaques in children.
