Pilomatricoma is usually a solitary subcutaneous nodule. Recurrence of the nodule after surgical excision is very rare. Pilomatricoma occurrence in patients with growth hormone (GH) deficiency has not been reported, yet. We report a 14-year-old boy with pilomatricoma and panhypopituitarism. After GH therapy had been started, we observed two relapses of previously completely excised pilomatricoma in the same location and a new pilomatricoma formation on the chin.
