Pediatric Pilomatrixoma

What is pilomatrixoma?

Pilomatrixoma is a slow-growing, hard mass found beneath the skin. It is most common on the face and neck, but is sometimes found elsewhere on the body. Pilomatrixoma is usually a single lump, but, occasionally, multiple masses are seen. Most cases of pilomatrixoma are diagnosed in children, but the frequency in adults is now thought to be more common.
