Cylindroma is a rare tumor which originates from skin appendages and occurs predominantly on the scalp and face. It is considered to be benign, but malignant transformation has been reported. It has two distinct clinical presentations, solitary and multiple. A review of the literature revealed that the majority of malignant cylindromas occur among multiple type cylindromas. Only 36 malignant cylindromas have been reported, and only 9 were of the solitary type. A case with a solitary type of cylindroma exhibiting malignant transformation of the scalp is presented.
