Answer

Localized granuloma annulare is most commonly found in children and in adults younger than 30 years. Generalized granuloma annulare demonstrates a bimodal age distribution, occurring in patients younger than 10 years and in patients aged 30-60 years. Although subcutaneous granuloma annulare can occur in adults, it is predominantly a disease of otherwise healthy children, who are typically aged 2-10 years. Similarly, perforating granuloma annulare most often affects children.
