Dr. Meenu Gill, Dr. Gauri Munjal, *Dr. Bharti Saklani and Dr. Rajeev Sen

ABSTRACT

Pilomatricoma is a benign appendageal tumor of hair matrix also known as Malherbes calcified epithelioma. A 20 year old female presented with a solitary, bluish nodule measuring one x one cm in the antero-medial aspect of left thigh since one year. Excision biopsy of the nodule was done which on histopathological examination revealed features of pilomatricoma. The sections were subjected to IHC for beta catenin and bcl2 which were non expressive. Although this tumor is most commonly seen in head, neck and upper extremeties, it can rarely arise in lower limbs and thus should be carefully evaluated.

Keywords: Pilomatricoma, shadow cells, thigh, unusual site.
