Abstract

Trichoepitheliomas are rare benign tumours of poorly differentiated trichogenic origin. They present as translucent lesions most commonly on centrofacial regions. Solitary lesions are seen in sporadic cases while multiple lesions are inherited in autosomal dominant pattern. We present a 9 year old child with multiple trichoepitheliomas  at classical sites with  none of the other  family members involved.
