Abstract A 71-year-old Japanese woman developed red-brown to yellow papules symmetrically on the eyelids and cheeks. The histopathology of a papule showed caseation necrosis surrounded by epitheloid cells intermingled with giant cells in the dermis. The patient was thus diagnosed as lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF). To the best of our knowledge, no LMDF patients of such an age have been described previously.
