General Discussion

Jessner lymphocytic infiltrate of the skin is an uncommon disorder that is characterized by benign accumulations of lymph cells in the skin. These small lesions are solid, pink or red in color, and appear on the face, neck, and/or back. Skin surrounding these lesions may be itchy and turn red. The lesions may remain unchanged for several years and then spontaneously disappear, leaving no scars.

Not much is known about this disorder. In fact, there is some difference of opinion as to whether it is distinguishable as a separate condition or represents a stage of some other disorder. Some scientists believe that Jessner lymphocytic infiltrate may be a type of lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) or discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE).
