Abstract

Osteoma cutis is a rare disorder characterized by compact bone formation in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. It is classified in primary and secondary forms according to the presence or absence of previous cutaneous lesions. Multiple miliary osteomas of the face is a form of primary miliary osteoma cutis that generally occurs in middle-aged and older women. We report a typical case of multiple miliary osteomas of the face in a 63-year-old woman.
