Piloleiomyomas are uncommon smooth muscle neoplasms of the skin with a few reproted cases in Indian literature (1,2,3,4,5). They are often misdiagnosed clinically. A correct biopsy report is important because patients may have to be managed medically since surgery is associated with a high rate of recurrence. The classical histologic findings, and Masson's stain to confirm the smooth muscle origin aids in the correct diagnosis.
