Pilomatricoma or Pilomatrixoma is a form of benign skin tumor, caused by irregularities in the hair follicles. The disease is characterized by the formation of lesions on skin with calcifications. They feel like small, hard lumps on the surface of the skin. They grow slowly and are not painful. They usually develop on the head and neck but are also found on the lower part of the body.
HOW IS PILOMATRICOMA DIAGNOSED?
They are sometimes associated with a rare neurological disorder called myotonic dystrophy.
