Mentions: Histopathologic examination of a perioral papule showed lymphohistiocytic inflammatory infiltrate affecting the superficial dermis and perifollicular areas with multinucleated giant cells forming multiple granulomas without central caseous necrosis over the dermis extension. The special staining for fungi (Grocott) and Mycobacteria were negative (Figure 3).
