    Ligneous conjunctivitis.
    Surv Ophthalmol 2003 Jul-Aug;48(4):369-88
    Department of Pediatrics, Leipzig University Medical School, Leipzig, Germany.
    Ligneous conjunctivitis (McKusick 217090) is a rare form of chronic conjunctivitis characterized by the development of firm fibrin-rich, woody-like pseudomembraneous lesions mainly on the tarsal conjunctivae. Less frequently, similar lesions may occur on other mucous membranes of the body indicating that these manifestations are part of a systemic disease. Histopathological findings from affected humans and (plasminogen-deficient) mice indicate that wound healing, mainly of injured mucosal tissue, is impaired due to markedly decreased (plasmin-mediated) extracellular fibrinolysis.

    J Am Acad Dermatol 2002 Feb;46(2 Suppl Case Reports):S5-7
    Department of Dermatology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77030, USA.
    We describe a case of colloid milium limited to the left arm. To the best of our knowledge, only 2 other cases of unilateral colloid milium have been reported. All of these patients had occupational UV light exposure patterns that could account for this unique distribution. Read More

    Papuloverrucous colloid milium: an occupational variant.
    Br J Dermatol 2000 Oct;143(4):884-7
    Istituto San Gallicano, IRCCS, Via San Gallicano 25/a, Rome, Italy.
    We report a case of adult colloid milium in a 47-year-old mechanic with a long history of professional contact with lubricating oils and of sun exposure. In addition to the typical translucent papules seen on the forehead, there were warty papules on the backs of both hands with unusual histological and ultrastructural features: marked hyperplasia of the epidermis with orthokeratotic hyperkeratosis and papillary deposits of colloid material that were contiguous with the basal layer of the epidermis. The hand lesions caused by occupational exposure to mineral oils and solar radiation represent an occupational variant of adult colloid milium. Read More

    Late onset hyalinosis cutis et mucosae.
    J Dermatol 2000 Jul;27(7):425-33
    Department of Dermatology & Syphilogy, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI 48201, USA.
    Two cases of non-familial, late onset (50 and 62-years-old) hyalinosis cutis et mucosae were studied and compared with classical early onset cases. Late onset cases showed essentially the same histological and ultrastructural features described for early onset cases. The late onset variety should be distinguished from other diseases; they resemble systemic amyloidosis and sometimes the adult form of colloid milium. Read More

    Papular elastosis.
    Cutis 2000 Jul;66(1):81-3
    I report two typical cases of a cutaneous disorder caused by sunlight, which is common in Phoenix, Arizona, "The Valley of the Sun." It currently masquerades under the misnomer, adult colloid milium. It generally presents clinically as asymptomatic, shiny, smooth, firm papules, 1 to 10 mm in diameter, involving chronically sun-damaged skin of adults. Read More

    Juvenile colloid milium associated with ligneous conjunctivitis: report of a case and review of the literature.
    Clin Exp Dermatol 2000 Mar;25(2):138-40
    Department of Dermatology, Singleton Hospital, Swansea, UK.
    Juvenile colloid milium is an extremely rare skin condition with an onset prior to puberty; it can be distinguished histologically from the adult form. We report a case of juvenile colloid milium associated with ligneous conjunctivitis and gingival deposits of an amyloid-like homogenous eosinophilic material. We hypothesize that all three of these are the same pathological process occurring at different sites and review the literature on these associations. Read More

    Cutaneous deposition diseases. Part I.
