Abstract

Milia en plaque (MEP) is a rarely-described benign, cutaneous dermatosis, characterized by numerous tiny milia within an erythematous base which usually occurs around the ears. We report a case of a well-defined, linear MEP arising from the right side of the forehead to the nasal bridge. This case is of particular interest as the site of occurrence is uncommon and the shape of lesion is atypical.
