Abstract

A 65-year-old female with chronic kidney disease (CKD) presented with a six-month history of asymptomatic translucent skin-colored and yellow plaques on the face. Similar yellow papules and nodules were noted in the oral cavity and eyelid margins. Biopsies were taken from the face and oral cavity showed homogeneous eosinophilic deposits with clefts in the dermis consistent with colloid milium. The patient was treated with fractional and surgical carbon dioxide (CO2) laser with improvement after one session.
