Pilomatrixoma: an infrequently encountered lesion on the lower extremity.

Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery, Southern Arizona VA Health Care System, Tucson, Arizona, USA.


We discuss the clinical presentation and treatment of pilomatrixoma as it occurs in the lower extremity. Although pilomatrixoma is far more common on the head, neck, and upper extremity, it can be found on the lower extremity. Treatment is aimed primarily at excision if the lesion is symptomatic or suspicious for malignancy. The authors present a case of a 73-year-old male who presented to the diabetic foot center with this condition.
