Multiple miliary osteoma cutis is an uncommon condition presenting as multiple skin-colored papules of variable sizes on the face. A 48-year-old woman presented with multiple skin-colored hard papules on both cheeks. Examination revealed firm-to-hard dome-shaped asymptomatic papules in cluster over both cheeks. A punch biopsy was performed, which showed evidence of focal bony trabeculae with associated normal appendages. Few larger papules were incised and followed up with curettage of bony material and closed. All lesions could not be incised and removed because of large number of lesions in cluster.
