Cylindromas are benign Eccrine Neoplasms that typically appear on the face and scalp and I occasionally encounter them in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Cylindromas usually occur as a single lesion and appear as a firm skin colored nodule. They can be easily mistaken for Pilar Cysts. There is a genetic condition in which patients develop multiple Cylindromas called Brooke – Spiegler Syndrome. In rare cases, the entire scalp can be covered with Cylindromas resulting in a “Turban” like appearance. Treatment of Cylindromas is by surgical excision.
