Congenital milia en plaque on scalp.

Ghosh S, Sangal S - Indian J Dermatol (2015 Jan-Feb)

Bottom Line: Fewer than 40 cases have been reported so far in dermatological literature, and most cases are described to occur in adults and in the peri-auricular area.We describe a case of congenital MEP on scalp of a five-year-old boy with a blaschkoid extension into posterior nuchal area.This case report claims its uniqueness because of the unusual site and congenital presentation.

ABSTRACT
Milia en plaque is a rare disease entity characterized by confluence of multiple keratin-filled cysts resulting from the obstruction of hair follicle without any preceding primary dermatosis. Fewer than 40 cases have been reported so far in dermatological literature, and most cases are described to occur in adults and in the peri-auricular area. We describe a case of congenital MEP on scalp of a five-year-old boy with a blaschkoid extension into posterior nuchal area. This case report claims its uniqueness because of the unusual site and congenital presentation.
