Pilomatricoma, formerly known as Pilomatrixoma is a benign dermal and/or subcutaneous tumour. It most commonly affects children and adolescents; however, a second smaller peak of onset is also reported in the elderly. It is slightly more common in females. This tumour was first described by Malherbeand in 1880 as a benign, subcutaneous tumor arising from hair cortex cells. The name pilomatrixoma was proposed by Forbis and Helwig in 1961, thus avoiding the word epithelioma, which carries the connotation of malignancy. Although osseous metaplasia in pilomatrixoma is a very rare occurrence but there are a few cases reported in the literature which has shown focal or florid osseous metaplasia. We are hereby presenting a case of pilomatrixoma with florid osseous mataplasia.
