Trichofolliculoma is a rare benign tumor, often considered as an hamartoma with follicular differentiation. As only a few case series have been published,(1,2,3) we collected 90 cases at the Strasbourg and Canary Islands University Hospitals, in order to obtain detailed clinical, pathologic and immunohistochemical data. The sex-ratio was 54/34 and the mean age 45.1 years, (6-75). The localization was on the nose (37.5%), the malar/cheek area (13.6%) and the ear (12.5%), with only 4 cases outside the face, i...

1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), the active metabolite of vitamin D, and calcium regulate epidermal differentiation. 1,25(OH)2D exerts its effects through the vitamin D receptor (VDR), a transcription factor in the nuclear hormone receptor family, whereas calcium acts through the calcium sensing receptor (Casr), a membrane bound member of the G protein coupled receptor family. We have developed mouse models in which the Vdr and Casr have been deleted in the epidermis ((epid) Vdr (-∕-) and (epid) Casr (-∕-))...

A 6-year-old male presented with a protruding hair emerging from a temporally located nodule on his left upper eyelid 5mm above the eyelid margin since birth. The lesion was excised and sent to histopathology. The features were consistent with congenital sebaceous trichofolliculoma, a rare hamartomatous skin lesion.

Hair follicle nevi are rare, benign, congenital hamartomas that usually occur in the distribution of the first brachial arch. Histopathologically, the distinction between hair follicle nevus, trichofolliculoma, and accessory tragus has recently come into question, and it may be that they are all on a spectrum of the same condition. We report the case of a 7-day-old boy who presented with a "tag"-like lesion on his midline chin that had been present since birth. Biopsy of the lesion proved it to be a hair follicle nevus...

Benign follicular tumors comprise a large and heterogeneous group of neoplasms that share a common histogenesis and display morphological features resembling one or several portions of the normal hair follicle, or recapitulate part of its embryological development. Most cases present it as clinically nondescript single lesions and essentially of dermatological relevance. Occasionally, however, these lesions be multiple and represent a cutaneous marker of complex syndromes associated with an increased risk of visceral neoplasms...

A single intraperitoneal injection of 50 or 75 mg/kg N-methyl-N-nitrosourea in male Sprague-Dawley rats at 4 weeks of age, dose-dependently resulted in cutaneous epithelial cysts and tumors of pilosebaceous origin. Cysts were composed of epidermal cysts or mixed epidermal and inner root sheath hybrid cysts. The majority of induced tumors were keratoacanthomas. A few tumors were trichofolliculomas, trichoblastomas, pilomatricomas, or sebaceous adenomas. All tumors were benign pilosebaceous tumors. Keratoacanthomas were crater-shaped tumors with thick infoldings of epithelium containing keratohyalin granules (epidermal lip) that abruptly changed to epithelium containing trichohyalin granules...

Initial investigations reported GATA3 to be a sensitive and relatively specific marker for mammary and urothelial carcinomas. Recently, GATA3 expression has been described in several other epithelial tumors. However, there has been only limited investigation of GATA3 expression in cutaneous epithelial tumors. The objective of this study was to examine the immunohistochemical expression of GATA3 in a wide variety of cutaneous epithelial neoplasms. GATA3 expression was evaluated in 99 benign and 63 malignant cutaneous epithelial tumors...

BACKGROUND: Hair follicle nevus is a rare, congenital hamartoma with follicular differentiation characterized histologically by numerous, tiny, mature hair follicles. Trichofolliculoma, the histopathological features of which are quite similar to those of hair follicle nevus, is also a hamartoma that differs from hair follicle. Accessory tragus is a relatively common, benign congenital abnormality of the external ear with an incidence rate of 1 to 10 per 1,000 live births. OBJECTIVE: This study seeks to assess the discriminatory value of currently available, histological criteria in the differential diagnosis of hair follicle nevus, accessory tragi and trichofolliculoma...

Trichofolliculomas are benign hair follicle hamartomas which were initially considered as hair follicle tumors. Usually presenting as a solitary lesion associated with a tuft of vellus hairs, multiple trichofolliculomas are rare. Trichofolliculomas are characterized by a histopathological feature of dermal keratin cyst with cyst wall showing radiating hair follicles. We report this case for the rare presentation of multiple trichofolliculomas on the face which clinically mimicked multiple trichoepitheliomas...

BACKGROUND: Trichofolliculoma is a rare benign tumor consisting of a pilosebaceous follicle hamartoma. While diagnosis of this condition is generally straightforward, fortuitous discovery of an atypical presentation can occur during histological examination of a biopsy or surgical sample. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report herein on 8 patients aged between 8 and 75 years illustrating the wide spectrum of clinical presentation of this lesion, for which there are numerous differential diagnoses in the event of atypical clinical (lack of central whitish hair plug) or topical features (extra-facial site)...

Sebaceous trichofolliculoma is considered as hamartomatous lesion with follicular differentiation. In this study, we demonstrated a classic histopathologic picture of sebaceous trichofolliculoma in a 65-year-old male presented with large sized right cheek swelling.

Trichofolliculoma represents abortive differentiation of pluripotent skin cells toward hair follicles. We present a case of an adult female with lobulated mass involving the tip and dorsum of the nose for the last 15 years. The systemic and radiological examinations were noncontributory. The clinical diagnosis was thought to be dermoid cyst. The fine-needle aspiration cytology of the lobulated mass was performed, and the cytology smears showed anucleate squames admixed with sebaceous cells. The possibility of a benign skin adnexal lesion was suggested...

Two guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) were presented with a clinical history of a chronic, unresponsive skin disorder with scaling, itching and alopecia. After clinical differential diagnoses (e. g. ectoparasitosis, dermatomycosis, endocrinopathy or allergy) had been ruled out, a skin biopsy revealed an epitheliotropic lymphoma (Mycosis fungoides). The pathohistological examination of the skin showed focal intraepidermal accumulations of tumorous lymphocytes also known as pautrier microabscesses. A full necropsy displayed also metastases in lymph nodes, and additionally tumor cells within skeletal muscle, heart, lung, liver and kidney in one animal...

Understanding the epigenetic mechanisms that control the activation of adult stem cells holds the promise of tissue and organ regeneration. Hair follicle stem cells have emerged as a prime model to study stem cell activation. Wnt/β-catenin signaling controls multiple aspects of skin epithelial regeneration, with its excessive activity promoting the hyperactivation of hair follicle stem/progenitor cells and tumorigenesis. The contribution of chromatin factors in regulating Wnt/β-catenin pathway function in these processes is unknown...

OBJECTIVE: Skin adnexal tumours (SAT) as a whole are rare tumours, and most of our current knowledge on SAT is from single case reports or small series focused on single histotypes. The purpose of this paper is to review a series of benign and malignant SAT diagnosed in a 20-year period. METHODS: All consecutive cases of SAT diagnosed between January 1992 and Dicember 2011 were retrieved. All slides were reviewed and diagnosed according to currently accepted criteria...

Various types of diseases can involve the nasal vestibule. Diagnosis and treatment of a nasal vestibular mass is often challenging due to the anatomical features of the nasal vestibule. Here, we present four cases with nasal vestibular masses. Two cases were diagnosed as squamous papillomas. The others were a trichofolliculoma and pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia with hyperkeratosis. Our aim was to discuss the characteristics of each disease and the considerations thought to be necessary for diagnosis and treatment of nasal vestibular tumors from these cases and the related literature...
