Diffuse, persistent milia in two infants

S. Menni, R. Piccinno

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors describe two unusual cases of diffuse, persistent milia, which appeared after the first month of life. Histopathology revealed an intradermal small cyst lined by flattened epidermal cells. The authors differentiate the two cases from other milia in infants. The father of one of the two children was affected by sebocystomatosis. Such association in the same family has never been reported in the literature.
