Abstract

Steatocystoma multiplex is a clinical condition characterized by numerous dermal cysts that have their origin in the pilosebaceous duct, which appear and grow at puberty. The cystic nodules range from 3 mm to 3 cm in size, and they are soft and freely movable. Although there are numerous reports of different treatment methods, the long-term management of steatocystoma multiplex remains to be difficult. We, herein, report on a case of 23-year-old man with steatocystoma multiplex on the buttock. He was successfully treated with dot peeling of 100% trichloracetic acid after aspiration of the oily contents without any complications, such as atrophy, scarring and skin necrosis. We report the combination therapy of needle aspiration and trichloroacetic acid peeling as new therapeutic modality for multiple steatocystoma multiplex.
