Title
Subcutaneous granuloma annulare : MR imaging and literature review
Author
Abstract
Subcutaneous granuloma annulare (SGA) is little known to radiologists. Better knowledge of this lesion may prompt accurate diagnosis. A typical case is presented with plain radiography, ultrasound and MR imaging, and is confirmed by histology. When an otherwise healthy child presents with a rapidly growing, solitary, nontender , subcutaneous soft tissue mass, located on the scalp or extensor aspect of the limbs, that radiologically presents as an indistinct radiodense and hypoechoic mass, isointense to muscle on T1- and slightly hypointense to fat on T2-weighted MR images, without calcifications, bone involvement or extracompartmental invasion, SGA should be suspected.
