Biopsies of a cutaneous osteoma and of normal-looking skin from a 1-year-old girl were studied for histological appearance and collagen biochemistry. The mineralized tissue contained a matrix similar to bone: Only type I collagen, with a hydroxylysine content (0.48%) higher than in the skin (0.35%) and dihydroxylysinonorleucine as the major reducible crosslink. As expected, the normal skin adjacent to the lesions contained type I and type III collagen and as major crosslinks hydroxylysinonorleucine and histidinohydroxymerodesmosine. Histological studies showed the presence of woven bone with very little trabeculation. Numerous active osteoblasts were laying down a rapidly calcified non-lamellar matrix. Osteocytes and multinucleated osteoclasts were also noted. The study demonstrates the osseous nature of the lesion and suggests that an abnormal cell differentiation is associated with this form of osteoma.
