We report a 77-year-old male with biopsy proven adnexal adenocarcinoma where there was only mass deposit of basement membrane material in the therapeutic excision. To our knowledge, this finding is extremely rare and has not been previously described in the literature and necessitates distinction from other conditions which cause eosinophilic hyaline deposits within the dermis.

Juvenile Colloid Milium: Case Report and Literature Review.

Maedica (Bucur) 2019 Jun;14(2):173-178

Dermatopathology Department, Dr. Leventer Centre, Bucharest, Romania.

Juvenile colloid milium (JCM) is a rare, chronic, benign but cosmetically disturbing degenerative dermatosis, characterized by the appearance of translucent papules on sun-exposed areas before puberty. The juvenile form of colloid milium is thought to be caused by an inherited susceptibility to ultraviolet (UV) light, transmitted in an either autosomal dominant or recessive manner, eventually leading to keratinocyte degeneration. The prevalence of JCM is unknown due to the scarcity of case reports. Read More

Colloid milium is a rare deposition disorder with accumulation of a characteristic amorphous substance in both protected and sun-exposed areas depending upon the disease subtype. The patient was a 59-year-old woman who was referred for evaluation of a gelatinous-appearing mass in the inferior fornix of the right eye, extending from the medial to the lateral canthal region, and extending up onto the bulbar conjunctival surface and anterior lacrimal gland. Hematoxylin and eosin stain of an incisional biopsy showed deposits of an amorphous brightly eosinophilic material within the conjunctiva with scattered plasma cells at the periphery. Read More
