Annular elastolytic giant-cell granuloma (also known as "Giant cell elastophagocytosis,"[1] "Meischer's granuloma,"[2] "Miescher's granuloma of the face"[1]) is a cutaneous condition characterized histologically by a dermal infiltrate of macrophages.[1][2]: 706 

Localized granuloma annulare has a tendency towards spontaneous resolution. Localized lesions have been treated with potent topical corticosteroids.[3]
