Trichilemmal carcinoma is a rare malignancy of hair follicles affecting sun-exposed and hair-bearing skin; occurrence over pinna is unusual. This case report describes one such uncommon presentation in a 71-year-old man who came with a pinna swelling clinically mimicking basal cell carcinoma. Diagnosis is an arduous task due to its close resemblance with more common cutaneous tumors. Misdiagnosis or delay in intervention may lead to recurrence and local metastasis.
