Abstract

Trichofolliculoma is an uncommon, benign cutaneous adnexal neoplasm most commonly occurring on the head and neck. Trichofolliculoma of the vulva has not been previously reported. The juxtaposition of a trichofolliculoma in an excisional biopsy specimen performed for vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN III) created a diagnostic dilemma and prompted a review of our files from 1989 to 2000 for additional cases. A search for benign hair follicle tumors of the vulva identified two additional trichofolliculomas. All three vulvar trichofolliculomas were associated with VIN III. During this same period, 628 cases of vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia II and III were identified. The appearance of trichofolliculoma at this previously unreported site may present diagnostic difficulty.
