Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma; a new case and review of the literature with emphasis on its differential diagnosis

Abstract

Trichoepithelioma is a benign neoplasm with hair follicle differentiation that may present as solitary, multiple or desmoplastic forms. This report describes a case of desmoplastic trichoepithelioma, an uncommon adnexal tumour with an incidence of 2 per 10,000. Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma is a benign lesion, clinically and histologically similar to other cutaneous tumours, and presents a true diagnostic challenge. The clinical criteria, histopathological features and immunohistochemical profile are discussed with emphasis on its differential diagnosis.
