Tricholemmoma of the Scalp: Case Report

Arch Dermatol. 1967;95(1):73-75. doi:10.1001/archderm.1967.01600310079018
Abstract

A slow-growing, subepidermal scalp tumor which was cured by excision, histologically recapitulated the outer hair sheath. The name "tricholemmoma" is considered legitimate for this tumor although similar tumors have been described by many other names. The problem of nomenclature is discussed.
