An 18-year-old male presented with multiple, skin-colored to yellowish, small (1-3 mm), asymptomatic papules arranged in parallel rows over the neck, supraclavicular area, and chest for the past 2 years [Figure 1]. We made a clinical diagnosis of juxta-clavicular beaded lines (JCBL) and reassured the patients regarding the benign nature of the condition. JCBL is a normal process rather than a malformation, hyperplasia, or hamartoma. Patients present with multiple, small, yellow papules in a linear pattern in the neck, clavicle, and presternal area. It is composed of a vellus hair follicle, with a sebaceous gland, opening into the follicular infundibulum. Histopathological examination of normal skin and JCBL reveals sebaceous glands similar in size, shape, and location.[1] It is a benign condition without any need for treatment.
