Benign hair follicle tumours review

Tellechea et al., (2015) review the development of hair follicles and the classification of benign hair follicle tumours (BHFT). Different BHFT histologies are discussed including differential diagnoses for each; trichodiscomas and fibrofolliculomas are both discussed as a marker of BHD. Awareness of these different cutaneous lesions allows dermatologists to identify patients who may be carrying mutations associated with cancer-prone syndromes.
