A 71-year-old man presented with an acute onset of multiple white papules on the face and chest. Histologic sections demonstrated multiple milia. The rare condition of multiple eruptive milia occurs when crops of milia develop suddenly on the face and upper trunk. Rare isolated cases have been reported; however there has not been a review of these cases or an attempt to classify them. The authors report an additional case, review the literature, and suggest a classification of multiple eruptive milia.
