Multiple Hereditary Cylindromas

Multiple Hereditary Cylindromas

A 60-year-old male patient presented with complaint of multiple swellings over the scalp and face for a duration of 5 to 7 years. The swellings measured between the range of 2 to 4 centimetres. These swellings gradually increased in size over a period of years. On history, it was also noted that similar types of swellings were present in the patient’s father and sister. Thus, proving the hereditary nature of the lesion. An excision biopsy of one of the swellings over the scalp was done to determine the exact nature of the swelling.
