Three conditions, erythema dyschromicum perstans (EDP), granulomatous periorificial dermatitis (GPD), and Kawasaki disease (KD) are seen more frequently in children of color. EDP and GPD are benign and self-limited dermatoses; therapy can shorten the course of the diseases. KD, a systemic vasculitis, can have life threatening cardiac consequences and timely therapy is essential. In all 3 conditions, clinicians should proceed with prompt and appropriate evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention when indicated. A case representing each condition is presented, followed by a discussion.
