CASE REPORT

Abstract.

The first case of pediatric paratesticular pilomatricoma is reported. Differential diagnosis with other more common lesions in such a site is the main issue. Conservative surgery is the treatment of choice. Follow-up is recommended, since most pilomatricomata are benign, but rarely malignant transformation may occur.
