  • Jessner lymphocytic infiltrate of the skin (also known as "Benign lymphocytic infiltration of the skin,"[1] "Jessner lymphocytic infiltration of the skin," "Jessner–Kanof lymphocytic infiltration of the skin," and "Lymphocytic infiltrate of Jessner") is a cutaneous condition characterized by a persistent papular and plaque-like skin eruption which can occur on the neck, face and back and may re-occur. This is an uncommon skin disease and is a benign collection of lymph cells. The cause of this is not known and can be hereditary.[1]:1887[2]:727 It is named for Max Jessner.[3][4] It has been suggested that it is equivalent to lupus erythematosus tumidus.[5]
