Abstract

Pilomatrixoma is a benign tumor of skin appendages with follicular differentiation most frequently found in children and adolescents, predominantly female. Clinically it is characterized by an erythematous-violaceous mobile nodule of hard consistency located on the head or neck. Although rare, multiple pilomatrixomas can be associated with other pathologies, particularly myotonic dystrophy or Steinert’s disease. In these cases, a prolonged follow-up should be maintained to rule out relapses and/or development of other diseases. We describe the case of a 9-year-old girl with multiple pilomatrixomas.
