CAMOZZATO, Camila et al. Facial miliary osteoma in HIV patient. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.4, suppl.1, pp. 66-68. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000700016.

Facial miliary osteoma is characterized by the presence of multiple normochromic papules, affecting mainly middle-aged women, with a previous history of acne. A 39-year-old HIV positive female patient presented hardened papules which had appeared 3 years before, located on the malar region, glabella and mentum. Optical microscopy showed spherical bone formations in the dermis. Computerized tomography of the face revealed small calcifications on the surface consistent with bone formation. Multiple facial osteomas are rare as well as its association with HIV virus infection
