Suhr, Seo, Kim, Kim, Suhr, Lee, and Park: A Case of Pilomatricoma Showing Rapid Enlargement Due to Intradermal and Intratumoral Hemorrhage


Pilomatricoma, known as calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe, is a deep dermal or subcutaneous tumor showing slow growth. There are some reports showing rapid enlargement of the tumors as a result of variable amounts of bleeding into the intratumoral cystic space and into the superficial dermis. We report an uncommon case of a rapidly enlarged pilomatricoma due to simultaneous in tratumoral and intradermal hemorrhage.
