Dermal cylindroma is a benign neoplasm of the eccrine sweat glands, which presents in the head and neck area in majority of cases. In its most florid presentation, the entire scalp can be involved, leading to the descriptive label turban tumor. They most commonly occur on the head and neck as solitary or multiple tumors. Solitary cylindromas occur sporadically and typically are not inherited. Multiple tumors are observed in an autosomal dominantly inherited manner. When nodules enlarge and coalesce on the scalp, they form the distinctive turban tumor feature. We present a case of multiple form of dermal cylindroma, occupying the anterior scalp in a 38-year-old male patient.
