Pilomatricomas are benign tumors of the hair follicle that occur frequently in the scalp region. They occur most often in children. We describe a case of pilomatricoma in a teenager, referred to neurosurgery for excision. This diagnosis should be considered in the workup of scalp lesions, and this case report should serve to draw attention to this entity.
