Osteoma Cutis

Osteoma cutis (OC) is a rarely seen benign disease that is frequently determined in females. The first case was informed by Wilckets in 1858. The disease is frequently localized on face, chest, breast scalp extremity and hip zone and usually asymptomatic. OC is divided into two groups as primary and secondary. Primary osteoma cutis (POC) constitutes 15% of the cases. There is no underlying reason and it coexists with some syndromes. Secondary osteoma cutis (SOC) constitutes 85% of the cases. SOC may develop as a result of metabolic disorder, increased level of serum calcium and thyroid-parathyroid hormonal disorders. It may also develop as a sequela of scleroderma, pilomatricoma, nevus, dermatomyositis, basal cell carcinoma, scars, trauma, skin inflammation, venous stasis and epidermoid cyst. Although ideal treatment has not been determined definitively, medical or surgical treatment or both treatments are used. In medical treatment topical and systemic drugs and in surgical treatment resection, curretage, dermabrasion and laser are used. In this case presentation, the patient who had POC with multiple locations, which is a rare situation, is discussed and literature is assessed.
