Steatocystoma multiplex in Adult
Steatocystoma multiplex tends to present during adolescence or young adulthood. Lesions typically occur on the trunk, upper arms, scrotum, axillae, or chest, but in severe cases, lesions may be generalized. Lesions are asymptomatic, skin-colored or yellowish dermal papules or nodules. When the lesion is incised, oily material may be expressed. Individual cystic lesions may become infected, leading to sinus formation and scarring. When multiple lesions become inflamed, it has been proposed that this variant be termed steatocystoma multiplex suppurativa.
Long-term management is difficult, and spontaneous resolution is not expected to occur.
