Pilomatrixoma: An Unusual Case With Secondary Corneal Ulcer

Arch Ophthalmol. 1985;103(4):553-554. doi:10.1001/archopht.1985.01050040095028
Abstract

• A 51-year-old man presented with a three-month history of a red and painful right eye. A corneal ulcer was diagnosed, and laboratory workup failed to disclose an etiologic factor. A white tumor, with an irregular and calcified surface, found in the superior tarsal conjunctiva, was considered to be the cause of the corneal ulcer. The tumor proved to be a pilomatrixoma that presumably developed from a congenitally ectopic hair follicle.
