“…8 Milia secondary to radiotherapy has been reported only in two cases in the literature. 1,4 In one of these cases, radiotherapy was applied for a basal cell epithelioma on the face, and just like in our case, both milia and comedones were observed on the normal skin in the vicinity of the radiotherapy area. 1 In the other case, multiple milia developed in the area of radiotherapy given for breast cancer, and exposure to radium for a strawberry nevus.…”

“…2 Another factor that may contribute to formation of comedones after radiotherapy may be the change in the structure of the pilosebaceous apparatus in the form of a blockade of the outlets of the sebaceous glands due to a cicatricial stricture formation. 1 This mechanism may also have a role in the formation of milia. As the late effects of radiation are scarring and fibrosis; obliteration of eccrine sweat ducts, sebaceous ducts and hair follicles with this process may be another factor in the etiology of milia formation.…”

“…This phenomenon was first described by Bluefarb [1] and later confirmed [4]. A typical acne eruption with comedones and pustules 6 months after palliative X-ray therapy to the spines and shoulders was reported [6] in a woman who also received systemic testosterone therapy due to metastatic breast cancer.…”

“…Erythem a of the exposed area, diminished or absent over the sebaceous glands, may contribute to the picture. It is also possible th at prolonged exposure to solar radiation may lead to stricture of sebaceous ducts and the production of small retention cysts, somewhat on the lines suggested by Rónchese [10]. However, no retention cysts were seen in the histological specimens and the pattern has also been observed in young children.…”
