Milia en plaque (MEP) is an unusual and extremely rare clinical variant of milia, characterized by multiple milia-like lesions overlying an erythematous edematous plaque with histologic findings consistent with milia. MEP tends to affect the middle-aged patients and shows a predilection for women. Among children, this entity is rarely described and, to our knowledge, only four cases have been reported to date in the dermatologic literature. We add three new cases of children, one of whom had an unusual site of presentation.
