Sulfone treatment of granuloma annulare

J Am Acad Dermatol. 1985 Dec;13(6):1004-8. doi: 10.1016/s0190-9622(85)70253-8.


Although spontaneous remission of granuloma annulare is not uncommon, most cases are chronic and resistant to a variety of therapeutic modalities. In our study we confirm the beneficial effect of dapsone treatment in patients with localized or generalized granuloma annulare. The results indicate that dapsone is a useful drug to control or at least to improve skin lesions in the majority of patients.
