Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pilomatricomas are the most common superficial pediatric tumor and current literature demonstrates that they can be diagnosed clinically. Excisional biopsy is recommended for diagnosis and curative treatment. Because the recurrence rate after excision is low, pilomatrical carcinoma should be considered in the case of local recurrence. Multiple pilomatricomas, on the other hand, are rare. They have been associated with various syndromes, of which myotonic dystrophy has been the most described. We present a patient with multiple pilomatricomas in an otherwise well 13-year-old girl and our management of her in relation to current literature.
