Milia en plaque (MEP) is an extremely rare form of milia that is characterized by a number of milia-like cysts on an erythematous base and histologically exhibits features of keratin cysts. The etiology is not exactly known. MEP is generally seen among middle-aged women and especially on the head and neck region. Many of the diagnosed cases are localized in the retroauricular region, eyelids and the nose region. To date, no case of MEP in the auricula has been reported in the literature. In this article, we present the case of a 71-year-old female patient clinically and histologically diagnosed with bilateral auricular milia en plaque (in the external ear canal) in the light of current literature.
