Sebaceous hyperplasia is a common and benign condition typically observed as single or multiple yellowish, soft, small papules commonly occurring on the forehead, cheeks and nose of middle aged adults or elderly people.
- Aggregated white-yellowish globules or structures (cumulus sign) surrounded by crown vessels (Groups of bending, scarcely branching blood vessels that extend towards the center without crossing it)  
- Other vascular structures which can be seen in sebaceous hyperplasias are arborizing telangiectasias .
- Bonbon toffee sign: Association of a central umbilication or small crater surrounded by white-yellowish globules or structures .
- Occasionally, milia-like cysts may be present.
