Differential diagnoses include granuloma annulare, granuloma faciale, cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (see this term) and idiopathic photodermatoses such as polymorphic light eruption. The differential diagnosis with lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET, see this term) is much more difficult and some recent studies suggest JLIS cannot be separated from LET.
