Pilomatrix carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor. It is usually reported in patients over 50 years. Nowadays, there is no standardized treatment while a high risk of recurrence after simple surgery was frequently observed. We report one case of a pilomatrix carcinoma in a 15 years old patient. In spite of a surgery with wide margins, she presented a local recurrence on the head and a lung metastasis. She had undergone a second surgery with additional radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She is now in remission.
