    Fractionated ablative carbon dioxide laser treatment of steatocystoma multiplex.
    J Cosmet Laser Ther 2016 Nov 19;18(7):364-366. Epub 2016 Jul 19.

This case report describes the successful treatment of a 51-year-old woman with steatocystomata limited to the face, who after two treatments with a fractionated ablative carbon dioxide laser remained free of cysts for three years. We conclude that this treatment should be considered as an efficient and effective treatment option for patients with steatocystoma multiplex. Read More

    Australas J Dermatol 2012 Aug 2;53(3):198-201. Epub 2012 Jul 2.
    Dipartimento di Anestesiologia, Terapia Intensiva e Scienze Dermatologiche, Università degli Studi di Milano, U.O. Dermatologia, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda-Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy.
    Steatocystoma multiplex (SM) is a hamartomatous malformation of the pilosebaceous duct consisting of dermal cysts filled with a sebum-like material. SM lesions are typically located in areas with sebaceous follicles, although atypical presentations involving sites lacking sebaceous follicles have exceptionally been described. We reviewed retrospectively a series of 32 histologically diagnosed SM observed in our department in the period 2006-2010, evaluating the kinds of lesions and their locations, and family history of SM and associated disorders, to focus on the clinical features of the acral subcutaneous variety of SM and to estimate its prevalence.
