A Caes of Trichoblastoma

Abstract

Trichoblastoma is a rare benign neoplasm that arises in the follicular germinative cells. The terminology and histopathological definition of this tumor is both complex and confusing. Trichoblastoma occurs only on the hair bearing areas such as the scalp, face and pelvic area with varying degrees in size. We describe a case of trichoblastoma occurring as a nodule on the nose. The tumor was composed of numerous lobules of basaloid epithelial cell nests with distinct peripheral palisading of nucleoli that were clearly demarcated from the stroma.
