Granuloma annulare occurs as an idiopathic and benign condition, although it may be associated with some neoplasms. We describe a 60-year-old man with granuloma annulare on dorsal hands who developed prostate carcinoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of granuloma annulare with prostate carcinoma. Granuloma annulare, especially in older age groups, may be classified as a sign of various carcinomas.
