Malherbe’s calcifying epithelioma (pilomatrixoma) is a rare subcutaneous benign tumor of adnexal origin that can calcify. Although it has a preference for the childhood age, it can occur at any age with a slight preference for females. In this paper, the authors describe the instrumental diagnostic and therapeutic path of a 50-year-old woman suffering from pilomatrixoma of the upper palpebral fissure of the left eye, using integrated CT and MRI imaging methods to evaluate all the information obtained from second-level instrumental investigations.


KEY WORDS: Pilomatrixoma; Tomography, X-ray, computed; Magnetic resonance imaging
