Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is a chronic and uncommon inflammatory dermatosis, characterized by yellowish-red papules, especially on the face and around the eyelids. It is considered to be a reaction to destroyed hair follicles. We dermoscopically evaluated two patients diagnosed with LMDF. Dermoscopy revealed follicular keratotic plugs and vascular structures. We discuss these cases and other diseases dermoscopically showing keratotic plugs.
