Cutaneous pili migrans (CPM) is an uncommon condition in which a hair fragment penetrates the skin and produces a creeping lesion similarly of cutaneous larva migrans associated with local pain. There are few reports of CPM in the literature, and none visually describes the migration of the hair shaft in the epidermis associated with pain. Herein, we showed the first report describing a case of an in situ sequential migration of CPM in an adult patient.
