AbstractLupus miliaris disseminatus faciei is an uncommon disease affecting face. Previously lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei was thought to be a tuberculid; but now it is considered as a granulomatuous variant fo acne rosacea. We report 4 cases; each having lesions on face but in 1 also on body. The cases had erythematous tiny popular lesions of varying chronicity of 4 months to 1 year. Investigations for tuberculosis were negative. Histopathology revealed tuberculoid granuloma. All patients responded to Erythromycin; except 1 required Chloroquine.
