Flurandrenolide-Impregnated Tape for Granuloma Gluteale Infantum

Flurandrenolide-Impregnated Tape for Granuloma Gluteale Infantum Abstract To the Editor.— Two cases of granuloma gluteale infantum (GGI) were treated with a flurandrenolide-impregnated tape. The cutaneous lesions flattened rapidly, but the erythema was more persistent. The lack of response to a noncorticosteroid-containing tape in the second case suggests that the response was attributable to the antiinflammatory effect of the medication. The prolonged use of the tape that contained flurandrenolide produced atrophy at the site of application. Report of Cases.—Case 1.— A baby girl was treated with 0.025% fluocinolone acetonide ointment for diaper dermatitis at the age of 3 months. Initially responding to therapy, the dermatitis exacerbated after treatment was discontinued. In January 1974, a red tumor appeared within the diaper contact area, and orally given antibiotics were without effect for a presumed secondary pyodermia. The tumors increased in size the number during an episode of diarrhea that lasted for ten days. The patient was referred to us References 1.
