Abstract

Pilomatricomas are benign calcifying neoplasms derived from follicle matrix cells. Standard treatment for pilomatricomas involves complete surgical excision, with an overall low rate of recurrence. We discuss a simple alternative surgical technique that allows for removal of the lesion with less residual defect than complete excision.
