A case of childhood granulomatous perioral dermatitis (CGPD)/facial Afro-Caribbean childhood eruption (FACE) in a three year old boy from Madagascar is described. This disorder occurs predominantly in black children until puberty. It is a relatively uncommon condition of unknown aetiology characterized by a monomorphic, papular eruption around the mouth, nose and eyes. The disorder looks like sarcoidosis, but it is benign and self-limited and not associated with any systemic manifestations. In our case we treated the patient with Elidel (pimecrolimus) with an excellent result.
