Persistent congenital milia involving the skin of the whole body in an infant with trisomy 13 syndrome

 
Abstract / Resumo
 
Milia are tiny pearly-white cysts on the surface of the skin. In newborns, milia are usually located around the nose and eyes and generally disappear after the first several weeks of life. Trisomy 13 is a severe chromosomal disorder, with various complications. Here, we report a case of a 9-month-old female infant with trisomy 13 who had persistent congenital milia covering her entire body surface.
 
Multiple pearly-white cysts measuring 1 to 2 mm in diameter on: (A) back; and (B) pudendum.
