Profuse congenital milia in a family

Kirsty J Rutter, Mary R Judge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Milia are keratin containing dermal cysts and are seen very frequently in neonates. They generally resolve spontaneously within the first few months of life. However, the presence of congenital milia may also be associated with a number of inherited disorders. We present a family with congenital milia and no other associated abnormalities in whom the milia were profuse and more persistent than usual. A number of inherited disorders which may be associated with the presence of milia are also discussed.
