Synopsis

Sebaceous hyperplasia, sometimes known as sebaceous adenoma, is localized hypertrophies of sebaceous glands on the face. It is most prominent around the nose and upper lip, where the density of sebaceous glands is highest. In the newborn circulating maternal hormones can stimulate sebaceous gland growth and activity leading to sebaceous hyperplasia. Premature infants are less affected, but sebaceous hyperplasia occurs in nearly half of term newborns.
