Reveal Findings

MR – Homogeneous T1 isointense, T2 and IR hyperintense, and enhancing cutaneous/subcutaneous lesion with poorly defined margins sparing the muscular fascia.

Reveal Discussion

Pilomatricoma is a rare benign tumor originating from pleuripotent cells which normally differentiate toward hair matrix cells. These are typically seen in childhood with a mean age of presentation of 8 years. Females are affected twice as often as males. The head and neck region is the most common (especially in the periorbital region) accounting for more than half of the cases; the upper extremity accounts for about a third of cases. Surgical excision with clear margins is the treatment of choice.
