Abstract

Colloid milium is an unusual cutaneous disorder characterized by multiple cystic papules. The adult form develops in sun-exposed parts of the body in patients who have actinic-damaged skin. We describe the case of a patient with the classic clinical and histologic features of this disorder. The patient was successfully treated by dermabrasion to the hands and affected facial regions and, 10 months later, has not shown any signs of recurrence.
