Pilomatrical Carcinoma in the Thigh: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Marwa A. Abd Elazeem, Dina Adel Radi.

Abstract
Pilomatrical carcinoma is a rare malignant hair follicle tumor. It may arise de novo or as a malignant transformation from benign pilomatricoma. The tumor is locally aggressive with an increased tendency of recurrence but with a low metastatic potential. A 51-year-old male patient presented with a slowly growing mass in the middle inner aspect of the left thigh. After surgical excision, microscopically the tumor was diagnosed as pilomatrical carcinoma.

Key words: Pilomatricoma, Pilomatrical carcinoma, Hair follicle, Thigh.
