Differential Diagnosis

History: Trichofolliculoma is a hamartoma of the pilosebaceous follicle, which results in several hairs being formed within the follicular opening and all protruding onto the epidermal surface from the one pilosebaceous orifice. Most cases occur in young adults. Clinically, lesions can be recognized as small, raised nodules with two or three hairs protruding together in a small tuft.
