Trichoepithelioma is a benign neoplasm with hair follicle differentiation that may present as solitary, multiple or desmoplastic forms. This report describes a case of desmoplastic trichoepithelioma, an uncommon adnexal tumour with an incidence of 2 per 10,000. Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma is a benign lesion, clinically and histologically similar to other cutaneous tumours, and presents a true diagnostic challenge. The clinical criteria, histopathological features and immunohistochemical profile are discussed with emphasis on its differential diagnosis.

毛髮上皮瘤為良性瘤細胞增生,可呈單一、多個或在結締組織中,在向毛髮結構分化過程中形成。此報告描述了一宗結締組織增生性毛髮上皮瘤──一種罕見的皮脂腺上皮瘤,發病率約為每萬人中兩例。毛髮上皮瘤是一種良性病變,從臨床學及組織學的角度來講與其他皮膚腫瘤類似,因而構成了診斷上的困難。本報告探討其臨床診斷標準、組織病理特點以及免疫組化概 要,並注重研究其鑒別診斷。
