J Am Acad Dermatol. 2002 Feb;46(2 Suppl Case Reports):S5-7. doi: 10.1067/mjd.2002.104965.


We describe a case of colloid milium limited to the left arm. To the best of our knowledge, only 2 other cases of unilateral colloid milium have been reported. All of these patients had occupational UV light exposure patterns that could account for this unique distribution.
