We report here on a 71-year-old female who had well-demarcated erythematous patches, along with some pearly papules, on the right cheek. Histopathological examination of the lesions revealed a basaloid cell mass, which appeared to be a superficial basal cell carcinoma, and a small keratin-filled cyst that appeared to be a milium. A part of the milium was surrounded by the basaloid cells of tumor islands and milia later developed on the lesion of basal cell carcinoma. We suggest that basal cell carcinoma may be one of the causes of secondary milia.
