Abstract
Granuloma annulare is a benign idiopathic disorder, which affects the dermis. Several reports have demonstrated an association between granuloma annulare and diabetes mellitus. We report the case of a 69-year-old man with an unusual presentation of generalized granuloma annulare following the diagnosis of adult onset diabetes mellitus.
