    We report about a 5-year-old boy who presented in our clinic with bilateral, slowly progressive solid tumors of the eyebrows. Histological examination of the excised tumors revealed the typical diversified picture of pilomatrixoma with basophilic and shadow cells. The bilateral or multiple manifestation of pilomatrixoma is uncommon and can be associated with myotonic dystrophy, sarcoidosis or Gardner's syndrome.
