Colloid milium is an ultraviolet related skin disorder, which presents on the sun exposed areas. The clinical presentation can be confusing as this eruption is often difficult to distinguish from a benign adnexal skin tumour, sebaceous gland hyperplasia or even a basal cell carcinoma. We present a 65 year old patient with a history of excessive sun exposure and a pruritic facial skin disorder consistent with colloid milium.
