Clinical differentiation from epidermoid cyst is almost impossible. Usual sites of appearance are head, neck and upper extremities. It is associated with other diseases and can be multiple. simple excision with the overlying skin, suffices as adequate treatment. A case of pilomatrixoma in a 6-year old girl was removed from the neck behind the right ear. The girl is doing well now.
