Özet

Pilomatricoma or benign calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe is a benign appendageal tumour originating from primitive cells of the hair matrix. Perforation (transepidermal elimination), bullous or anetodermic cutaneous changes overlying pilomatricomas are rare events. In this report, we describe a case of pilomatricoma with bullous appearance or secondary anetoderma. The tumour was totally excised and the wound healed well with no recurrence.
