Granuloma annulare (GA) is a benign, granulomatous disease of unknown origin affecting patients of all ages. Localized and disseminated variants are reported. Treatment is not often needed as the majority of these lesions self-resolve within 2 years. Treatment may be pursued for cosmetic reasons. Available options include high-dose steroid creams, PUVA, cryotherapy, or drugs such as niacinamide, infliximab, dapsone, and topical calcineurin inhibitors. Patch GA lesions are more prone to regression and the outcome of treatment is difficult to evaluate. Cryotherapy with LN is a good option in patients with localized GA.
