Synopsis

Trichoepithelioma is a benign cutaneous tumor of hair follicle origin. The lesion typically occurs as an isolated papule on the face of a young adult but may occur as multiple lesions in children and adolescents as part of one of several autosomal dominant disorders (eg, Brooke disease, Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, Rombo syndrome, or Bazex-Dupré-Christol syndrome).

Solitary, larger trichoepitheliomas may occur. This is frequently associated with large cylindromas on the scalp (turban tumors). Malignant degeneration does not occur, but early onset of associated basal cell carcinomas may occur in patients with multiple trichoepitheliomas (eg, Rombo syndrome or Bazex-Dupré-Christol syndrome).
