Granuloma faciale (GF) is a chronic condition characterized by red-brown plaques with follicular accentuation present usually on the face. We present a case of 35-year-old female with 5 year history of plaques over cheek and extra facial sites consistent with GF and its response to topical tacrolimus. This case supports previous reports of successful treatment of GF with topical tacrolimus.
