Arch Dermatol. 2006;142(9):1231-1244. doi:10.1001/archderm.142.9.1238

Calcinosis cutis includes dystrophic, metabolic, iatrogenic, and idiopathic subtypes. One variant of idiopathic calcinosis cutis is the milialike variant. A recent case report and literature review identified a total of 18 reported cases of milialike idiopathic calcinosis cutis in children.1 To our knowledge, only 6 cases have been reported in patients without Down syndrome.1-4 We present a case of generalized milialike idiopathic calcinosis cutis in a child without Down syndrome.
