Pilomatrix carcinoma: A case report and review of the literature

G. Martelli, R. Giardini

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Pilomatrix carcinomas are malignant uncommon tumors of hair matrix origin. The clinicopathologic features of a case of pilomatrix carcinoma are described and compared with those of the previously reported cases. Because these tumors behave similarly to a basal cell carcinoma a complete excision is necessary in order to minimize the likelihood of relapse.
