Abstract

Granuloma gluteale infantum is a rare pediatric dermatological disorder of uncertain etiology. Suggested causes include fluorinated corticosteroids, Candida albicans, and irritant contact dermatitis. We present the case of a 3-year-old boy with recurrent episodes of granuloma gluteale infantum which resolved with treatment of his fecal overflow incontinence. As each recurrence correlated with a relapse of overflow incontinence, in this case the cause was irritant contact dermatitis from the liquid stool. This is the first reported case of recurrent granuloma gluteale infantum.
