Author information

Pilomatricoma is a benign neoplasm originating from primitive cells of the hair matrix. Occasionally the skin overlying pilomatricomas assumes peculiar clinical features, and anetodermic change of the skin overlying pilomatricomas is sometimes seen, but perforation in pilomatricoma is a rare event. We report a case of perforating pilomatricoma with anetoderma in an adolescent with lymphoma.
