[Osteoma cutis of the forehead].HNO. 1985 Dec; 33(12):548-50.HNO
A 61-year-old woman with a focus of lamellar bone with bone-marrow in the corium of the forehead skin, the socalled Osteoma Cutis is reported. A review of the literature revealed 416 reports of bone structure in the integument. Osteosis Cutis Faciei is a rare and a harmless illness occurring in women aged 40-80. While the clinical diagnosis causes great problems, the histological appearances of a cutaneous bone-structure can be clearly recognised. The therapy of the cutaneous bone structure is confined to biopsy excision with a good margin of healthy tissue.
