Abstract

We report a patient with new-onset ulcerated granuloma annulare with concomitant involvement of B-cell leukemia. A granuloma annulare-like eruption with concomitant B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia involvement in the skin is extremely rare, as only three cases have been previously reported in the literature to our knowledge. Given the rarity of ulceration in conventional granuloma annulare, it is possible this finding may serve as a diagnostic clue for underlying malignancy.
