Abstract

Idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma (IFAG) is a recently described and rare condition. It is considered a form of infantile granulomatous rosacea. IFAG with facial and eyelid nodules is very rare. A description is presented of three cases of IFAG eyelid nodules. They concern healthy children with no history of trauma. Biopsy examination revealed non-caseating inflammatory granulomas. Different medical treatments have been tried that seem to accelerate its healing, although its tendency is spontaneous resolution within several months. Painless recurrent eyelid nodules can be confused with chalazion. The diagnosis of IFAG should be considered in chronic eyelid nodules.

Keywords:
Eyelid nodules
Facial granulomas
Infantile rosacea
Resumen

El granuloma facial aséptico idiopático (GAFI) es una entidad recientemente descrita y poco frecuente. Se considera una forma de rosácea granulomatosa infantil. Es menos frecuente el GAFI con nódulos faciales y palpebrales asociados. Describimos tres casos GAFI que presentan esta asociación. Son niños sanos sin ningún antecedente traumático. El examen de la biopsia realizada en uno de los pacientes reveló granulomas inflamatorios no caseificantes. Se han ensayado distintos tratamientos médicos que parecen acelerar su curación, aunque su tendencia es la resolución espontánea en el plazo de varios meses. Los nódulos palpebrales indoloros de repetición se pueden confundir con el chalazión. Debemos pensar en GAFI ante nódulos palpebrales de larga evolución.

Palabras clave:
Nódulos palpebrales
