Calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe or better known as pilomatrixoma is a benign skin/subcutaneous neoplasm originating from the hair matrix cells. It is mostly diagnosed in the head, neck, and upper and lower extremities. Only few cases in the breast have been reported in the literature. Also, it is more common in women and young patients. Imaging findings of pilomatrixoma of the breast can overlap with those of malign lesions. Here, we report a very rare case of pilomatrixoma of the male breast and its clinical, mammographic, and sonographic features.
