Abstract

Calcifying epithelioma (pilomatrixoma) is an uncommon benign tumor arising from the hair matrix cells. It often affects the face, neck and upper extremities. A 25-year-old female with a calcifying epithelioma in the preauricular region is reported. It was not difficult to diagnose the tumor as a calcifying epithelioma by soft X-ray, echography and CT scan before surgery because of the calcification. CT scan was particularly useful in the diagnosis.
