NIH Rare Diseases:43 A pilomatrixoma is a benign (non-cancerous) skin tumor that typically occurs in the head and neck area. the tumor usually does not cause any symptoms, but it can be associated with pain. a pilomatrixoma often occurs during childhood but has been reported in individuals of all ages. it may be caused by a change (mutation) in the ctnnb1 gene. pilomatrixomas have been reported to occur in multiple members of a family, although the pattern of inheritance has not been confirmed. familial cases have been observed but the mode of inheritance has not been confirmed. treatment focuses on surgical removal of the tumor. pilomatrixomas usually occur in the absence of another condition but have been associated with some conditions including gardner syndrome, myotonic dystrophy (especially when multiple pilomatrixomas are present), and sarcoidosis.  a few cases of malignant (cancerous) pilomatrixoma have been reported. last updated: 12/1/2010

MalaCards: Pilomatrixoma, also known as pilomatricoma, is related to basal cell carcinoma and skin pilomatrix carcinoma. An important gene associated with Pilomatrixoma is CTNNB1 (catenin (cadherin-associated protein), beta 1, 88kDa), and among its related pathways are Non-Canonical Wnt Pathway and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The compounds palmitate and matrigel have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, breast and bone.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Pilomatricoma, also known as pilomatrixoma, is a type of noncancerous (benign) skin tumor associated with hair follicles. Hair follicles are specialized structures in the skin where hair growth occurs. Pilomatricomas occur most often on the head or neck, although they can also be found on the arms, torso, or legs. A pilomatricoma feels like a small, hard lump under the skin. This type of tumor grows relatively slowly and usually does not cause pain or other symptoms. Most affected individuals have a single tumor, although rarely multiple pilomatricomas can occur. If a pilomatricoma is removed surgically, it tends not to grow back (recur).
