Basaloid Follicular Hamartoma of the Eyelid: A Case Report and Literature Review about an Unusual Lesion in the Ocular Region.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jan 7;12(1). Epub 2022 Jan 7.

Anatomic Pathology Service, Pathology Department, Centro Hospitalar e Universitário do Porto, Largo Professor Abel Salazar, 4099-001 Porto, Portugal.

Basaloid follicular hamartoma (BFH) is a normally benign, uncommon, malformative lesion involving the hair follicles, which usually poses challenges in the differential diagnosis with other benign and malignant tumours, especially basal cell carcinoma, due to significant clinical and morphological overlap. Here, we report the case of a 53-year-old male who presented with a mass in the upper left eyelid evolving for one year. The patient had a previous history of total colectomy and an abdominal desmoid tumour within the context of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP), with a documented germline mutation in the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) gene.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Nacional de Pediatría "Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan", Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Basaloid follicular hamartoma is a benign, superficial malformation of hair follicles that can be mistaken both clinical and histopathologically for basal cell carcinoma. Basaloid follicular hamartoma has been linked to a mutation in the PTCH-1 gene, which is part of the same pathway involved in Gorlin-Goltz syndrome. Here we present a 9-year-old patient with an asymptomatic congenital lesion on the forehead, which increased in size over the years. Read More

Basaloid Follicular Hamartoma: An Additional Criterion of Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome.

Am J Dermatopathol 2022 01;44(1):66-69

Dermatology and Dermatopathology, and.

Abstract: Basaloid follicular hamartoma (BFH) is a rare, benign follicular neoplasm which typically presents as brown to skin-colored papules on the face, scalp, and trunk. Histologically, BFH consists of cords and strands of basaloid cells forming cystic structures with scant stroma and should be distinguished from infundibulocystic basal cell carcinoma to avoid overly aggressive treatment. Although BFH has been found to be associated with distinct syndromes, including alopecia, myasthenia gravis, and cystic fibrosis, there is often clinical, histopathologic, and genetic overlap with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS).

Nevus sebaceus with syringocystadenoma papilliferum, prurigo nodularis, apocrine cystadenoma, basaloid follicular proliferation, and sebaceoma: case report and review of nevus sebaceus-associated conditions.

Dermatol Online J 2020 Feb 15;26(2). Epub 2020 Feb 15.

School of Medicine, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA.

Nevus sebaceus is a benign skin hamartoma of congenital onset that grows during puberty, and in adulthood can develop secondary benign and malignant neoplasms. The most common benign neoplasms occurring in nevus sebaceus are believed to be syringocystadenoma papilliferum, trichilemmoma, and trichoblastoma. A patient with nevus sebaceus developed not only syringocystadenoma papilliferum but also prurigo nodularis within her hamartomatous lesion; multiple biopsies were necessary to establish the diagnoses.

Generalized basaloid follicular hamartoma syndrome versus Gorlin syndrome: A diagnostic challenge.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Nov 28;35(6):e396-e397. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Basaloid follicular hamartoma is a relatively rare benign neoplasm of follicular origin that can be mistaken histologically for basal cell carcinoma, but hereditary forms of basaloid follicular hamartoma are associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, or Gorlin syndrome. The pathophysiology of basaloid follicular hamartoma development involves mutations in the patched gene, which is also causative in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. We present a mother and daughter with basaloid follicular hamartomas, with genetic testing confirming patched gene mutation in the daughter. Read More

Consultant Dermatologist, Sakhiya Skin Clinic, Surat, Gujarat, India.

Basaloid follicular hamartoma (BFH) is a rare hamartoma of hair follicle. Clinical presentations may vary but are united by the same histopathological features in the form of folliculocentric basaloid or squamoid cell proliferation in the superficial dermis, which represents malformed and distorted hair follicles. It is important to recognize this entity as its simulant is basal cell carcinoma, a low-grade malignancy. Read More

Germline Mutations and the Basaloid Follicular Hamartoma Values in the Tumor Spectrum of Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome (NBCCS).

Anticancer Res 2018 01;38(1):471-476

Dermatology Unit, Surgical, Medical and Dental Department of Morphological Sciences related to Transplant, Oncology and Regenerative Medicine, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.

Background/aim: Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disorder characterized by multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCC), odontogenic tumors and various skeletal anomalies. Basaloid follicular hamartomas (BFHs) constitute rare neoplasms that can be detected in sporadic and familial settings as in the Basaloid Follicular Hamartoma Syndrome (BFHS). Although BFHS shares clinical, histopathological and genetic overlapping with the NBCCS, they are still considered two distinctive entities. Read More

Context: - Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human malignant neoplasm and is a frequently encountered diagnosis in dermatopathology. Although BCC may be locally destructive, it rarely metastasizes. Many diagnostic entities display morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with BCC, including nonneoplastic processes, such as follicular induction over dermatofibroma; benign follicular tumors, such as trichoblastoma, trichoepithelioma, or basaloid follicular hamartoma; and malignant tumors, such as sebaceous carcinoma or Merkel cell carcinoma.
