Idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma is a pediatric condition characterized by red-violaceous nodule usually located on the cheeks. Differential diagnosis with other facial nodules must be done. The pathogenesis is still unclear but seems to be associated with rosacea. It is important keeping in mind the possible ophthalmological damage of rosacea so follow up is recommended. As we show in the case report, it is a benign lesion and it tends to spontaneous resolution, so we can avoid invasive treatments.
