Multiple familial pilomatricomas: an unusual case.

Author information

  • 1Department of Dermatology, Bart's Hospital, London, UK.


Although solitary pilomatricomas are relatively common, multiple pilomatricomas occur rarely, in 2-3.5% of reported cases. The majority of cases of familial multiple pilomatricomas occur in association with myotonic dystrophy. The occurrence of multiple familial pilomatricomas in patients who are otherwise well is extremely rare. We describe a 29-year-old man with multiple pilomatricomas whose father and brother also had similar lesions. There is no history of myotonic dystrophy.
