The term “red face” is reserved for lesions located exclusively or very predominantly on the face. Diagnosis is based on different data: date and mode of appearance, characteristics of the erythema, functional signs, and associated systemic manifestations. A case of red face can have an infectious origin, caused by vascular, congenital, or acquired lesions, or be caused by photodermatosis, or be the main location of inflammatory dermatosis or collagenosis, but depending on the clinical context, many other diagnoses can be suggested. A few observations are presented so as to discuss the management of red face in the atopic patient, the role played by ultraviolet rays in the cutaneous lesions of dermatomyositis, as well as the diagnostic criteria of polymorphous light eruption, and lupus erythematosus.

Le terme de visage rouge ou red face des anglo-saxons est réservé à des lésions localisées au visage de manière exclusive ou très prédominante. Le diagnostic repose sur différentes données: date et mode d’apparition, caractéristiques de l’érythème, signes fonctionnels et manifestations systémiques associés. Un visage rouge peut être d’origine infectieuse, dû à des lésions vasculaires, congénitales ou acquises, ou à une photodermatose, être la localisation principale d’une dermatose inflammatoire ou d’une collagénose mais en fonction du contexte clinique, beaucoup d’autres diagnostics peuvent être évoqués. Quelques observations sont présentées permettant de discuter la prise en charge du visage rouge de l’atopique, le rôle des ultra-violets dans les lésions cutanées de la dermatomyosite, et les critères de diagnostic de la lucite polymorphe et du lupus érythémateux.
