Abstract

Granuloma annulare is a dermatologic condition of unknown etiology that has been associated with systemic diseases and reported to be a paraneoplastic manifestation. Two patients with generalized granuloma annulare as an initial manifestation of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia are herein described. We suggest that chronic myelomonocytic leukemia should be added to the list of systemic diseases associated with generalized granuloma annulare.
