Juvenile colloid milium associated with conjunctival and gingival involvement

J Am Acad Dermatol. 2003 Dec;49(6):1185-8. doi: 10.1016/s0190-9622(03)00457-2.


Juvenile colloid milium is an uncommon cutaneous disease characterized by translucent papules distributed on sun-exposed areas with early onset. Association of juvenile colloid milium with conjunctival and gingival deposits is uncommon and interesting. We report a case of juvenile colloid milium associated with conjunctival and gingivai deposits of an amyloid-like homogeneous eosinophilic material. It seems that all 3 of these in our patient may be different expressions of the same pathologic disease.
