The pilomatricoma(Calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe) is rare benign tumor of adnexal kerationcytes. It is occuring usually as a single, asymptomatic, 1cm to 3cm sized, deep seated, firm nodule, covered by normal or pink skin. Histopathologically, the pilomatricoma is sharply demarcated and often surrounded by a connective tissue capsule. As a rule, two types of cell, basophilic and shadow cell, compose the islands. The small, round, eosinophilic centers of keratinization are seen within areas of basophilic cells or within aggregates of shadow cells. Recently, the authors have experienced a case of pilomatricoma originated from the neck in a 10 year old male patient.
