Trichofolliculoma and Trichoblastic Fibroma

  • K. Ishikawa
Conference paper


At present a considerable large variety of hair follicle tumors are recognized. To classify these tumors is very difficult. I am reporting here only two cases of hair follicle tumors: trichofolliculoma of Miescher and trichoblastic fibroma of Headington. And further I’ll express my views on hair follicle tumors which are related to the hair matrix and papilla.
