Abstract

Hair follicle nevus is a rare hamartoma that has numerous tiny but mature hair follicles with thick fibrous root sheaths. It occurs on the face at or after birth. It must be differentiated from accessory tragus by clinical and histological findings. We herein report a unique case of a hair follicle nevus that may be associated with an accessory tragus on the face of a neonate.
