Piloleiomyoma is a benign tumor originating from the arrector pili muscles of hair follicles. It is a clinicopathologic subtype of a variety of leiomyoma cutis. Piloleiomyomas are multiple, smaller, firm, reddened intradermal nodules presenting with clusters or linear arrangement. These tumors are typically located on the trunk or extremities, characteristically accompanied with paroxysmal pain or tenderness. Herein, we present one case of painless multiple piloleiomyoma occurring on the neck region, along with a clinico-pathologic review of the literature.
Key Words: Piloleiomyoma, Leiomycoma, Neck
