definition

Rare chronic disease occurring on the nose and, occasionally, the cheeks and chin of prepuberal children. It is characterized by diffuse erythema, persistent hyperhidrosis, discrete brownish-red macules and soft papules on an erythematous base. The condition usually subsides at puberty, but may persist indefinitely. Most cases are genetically determined, but the mode of inheritance is uncertain.
