Cylindromas are uncommon but not rare benign adnexal tumors. They most commonly occur on the head, the neck, and the scalp in solitary and multiple patterns. Solitary cylindromas affect the face and the scalp of older adults, and they do not seem to be inherited. Multiple tumors are not as common and are inherited in an autosomal dominant mode, and they may occur on the trunk and the extremities as well as the head and the neck. When nodules enlarge and coalesce on the scalp, they form the distinctive turban tumor feature.
