Granuloma annulare is a benign, relatively common dermatosis of childhood. Lesions typically occur on the extremities and resolve spontaneously over a period of several months to years. Localized facial involvement is rare. We report a case of granuloma annulare confined to the left eyelid. The literature on periocular granuloma annulare is reviewed. This diagnosis should be considered for any acquired papules of the periorbital area, especially if there is a history of antecedent trauma. Unnecessary surgical excision can then be avoided.
