Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Milia are frequently encountered as a primary or secondary patient concern in pediatric and adult clinics, and in general or surgical dermatology practice. Nevertheless, there are few studies on the origin of milia and, to our knowledge, there is no previous comprehensive review of the subject. We review the various forms of milia, highlighting rare variants including genodermatosis-associated milia, and present an updated classification.
