Abstract

Sebaceous hyperplasia is not a rare disorder and commonly develops on the face over the age of forty. The typical clinical manifestation is 2~3 mm sized, single or multiple, soft, protuberant, yellowish nodules with central umbilication. Histological examination reveals a group of mature sebaceous lobules and central sebaceous ducts. We describe an unusual case of a 28-year old female patient with grouped premature sebaceous hyperplasia. The lesions presented clinically as grouped, yellowish, umbilicated papules on the left cheek, and had developed at 10 years of age.
