Colloid milium (CM) is a rare cutaneous deposition disease with at least 3 distinct subtypes. The exact histogenesis of the condition is still unresolved and awaits definitive elucidation. Electron microscopy and immunohistochemical analysis have allowed the distinction of CM from clinically similar conditions such as amyloidosis. Successful treatment has been achieved with dermabrasion and, more recently, with ablative and fractional laser resurfacing of affected skin.
