Management of multiple trichoepithelioma: A review of pharmacological therapies.

Australas J Dermatol 2021 Jan 5. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Department of Dermatology, Mater Misericordiae Health Services, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Trichoepithelioma is a rare benign adnexal neoplasm that can occur in various forms including solitary, multiple, familial or nonfamilial. Multiple facial trichoepithelioma can be associated with significant psychosocial burden. Conventional treatment modalities such as surgical excision and ablative laser have variable results and can be associated with unacceptable complications and tumour regrowth. Read More

Morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinoma: a clinicopathological study with long-term clinical follow-up.

Histopathology 2021 Jun 6;78(7):970-975. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Aims: Trichoblastic carcinomas (malignant trichoblastomas) are rare and poorly documented neoplasms characterised by malignant transformation of a pre-existing benign trichoblastoma, and are subdivided histologically into low-grade and high-grade tumours. Whereas morphologically low-grade trichoblastic carcinomas show indolent behaviour, morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinomas have been associated with a poor prognosis, but little is known about their true biological potential. The aim of this study was to better define the clinicopathological features and outcomes of morphologically high-grade trichoblastic carcinomas. Read More

Glioma-Associated Oncogene-1 Expression in Basal Cell Carcinoma and Its Histologic Mimics.

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 Dec 1. Epub 2020 Dec 1.

Departments of Pathology.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer, and it has numerous histologic mimics with variable prognoses and treatments. Although some immunohistochemical stains can be used for the differential diagnosis of BCC, variability and overlap in results can complicate their interpretation. Immunohistochemical staining for glioma-associated oncogene-1 (Gli-1) was performed on 26 nodular BCCs, 22 infiltrative BCCs, 9 basaloid squamous cell carcinomas, 12 desmoplastic trichoepitheliomas, 19 Merkel cell carcinomas, 11 sebaceous carcinomas, 10 cylindromas, 14 spiradenomas, 12 adenoid cystic carcinomas (AdCC), and 1 solitary trichoepithelioma.

Desmoplastic Trichoepithelioma: Histopathologic and Immunohistochemical Criteria for Differentiation of a Rare Benign Hair Follicle Tumor From Other Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors.

Cureus 2020 Aug 12;12(8):e9703. Epub 2020 Aug 12.

Pathology, South Bend Medical Foundation, South Bend, USA.

Desmoplastic trichoepitheliomas (DTEs) are benign cutaneous neoplasms that originate from the hair follicle and exhibit a preference for the facial region. This type of neoplasm is characterized by accelerated growth, with vigorous histologic and immunohistochemical features that may be confused with other skin cancers. Thus, the objective of this study is to establish a definitive diagnosis that can be widely used. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma misdiagnosed as trichoepithelioma.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2020 Jun 29;21(3):202-205. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hallym University Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Anyang, Korea.

Trichoepithelioma is a benign hair follicle tumor that can undergo malignant transformation into basal cell carcinoma in rare cases. Due to the similar clinical and histological features of trichoepithelioma and basal cell carcinoma, distinguishing between these types of tumors can be a diagnostic challenge. Punch biopsy obtains only a small sample of the entire lesion, and thus inherently involves a risk of misdiagnosis between histologically similar diseases. Read More

Hidradenoma Papilliferum: Everyone Else's Diagnosis.

Indian J Dermatol 2020 Mar-Apr;65(2):151-153

Department of Dermatology, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey, USA.

A 52-year-old female presented with an asymptomatic cyst-like lesion on her right labia majora present for several years. Excision revealed a 3-mm cystic lesion containing complex networks of thin fronds of clear apocrine cells and basaloid cells, features characteristic of hidradenoma papilliferum (HP). In contrast to the medical literature, the lesion was connected to the overlying epithelium by a straight duct, a feature characteristic of apocrine glands. Read More

Desmoplastic Trichoepithelioma: An Uncommon but Diagnostically Problematic Benign Adnexal Tumor.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Dec;27(4):282-284

Vladimír Bartoš, MD, PhD, MPH, Deapartment of Pathology Faculty Hospital in Žilina, Vojtecha Spanyola 43, 012 07 Žilina, Slovakia;

Dear Editor, I read an interesting recent article by Karimzadeh et al. (1) in an earlier issue of your journal, who provided a comprehensive review addressing a relatively rare benign tumor originating from the hair follicles - trichoepithelioma (TE). They rightly claimed that trichoepithelioma can be divided into the following 3 subgroups: a) multiple familiar TE, b) solitary non-hereditary TE, and c) desmoplastic trichoepithelioma (DTE).
