Abstract

A pigmented follicular cyst typically presents as an asymptomatic, solitary papule on head and neck in adult men. The histologic features of pigmented follicular cysts are cross-sectioned, terminally-differentiated hair shafts in an epidermal cyst. There are no sebaceous lobules or other appendages within the wall or in close proximity. We herein report a case of pigmented follicular cyst of the axilla in a 31-year-old man.
