Answer

Localized granuloma annulare is the most common among the various subtypes. Of all patients with granuloma annulare, 9-15% have the generalized variant. Perforating granuloma annulare has been reported to have a prevalence of 5% among granuloma annulare subtypes; further, reports suggest that this variant may be more common in the Hawaiian Islands.
