Abstract

 

Cylindromas are benign neoplasms that commonly occur as solitary, slow-growing nodules on the head and neck regions, especially the scalp and face. Large variants usually composed of multiple coalescing tumors on the scalp and forehead (“turban tumors”). Despite its histologically benign behaviour, the disease process is distressing for the patients. We present our experience of this condition in which diagnosis was made on histopathology in the early course of disease, helping in early and better management of the patients.
