Calcifying Tumor of Malherbe

Dr.Bharti Padmakar Baviskar, Dr. Ravindra Karle, Dr. Shubhangi Prashant Nigwekar, DR. SOMEN MISRA



 Tumours of the eyelid are not very common. Frequently we come across squamous cell carcinoma. We are reporting a rare case of calcifying epithelioma of eye. The usual presenting region is the hair bearing areas of body and upper extremity. A 15 years old male presented with swelling over upper lid.  Clinically diagnosed as  molluscum contagiosum. Surgical excision was carried out. Histopathology confirmed it as calcifying epithelioma of the eye.

Epithelioma situated over the eyelid is very rare.
