A trichofolliculoma is a well-differentiated, benign hair tumour. Typically, it presents as a single, small nodule with multiple, malformed hairs arising from its surface. The most common site is on the face or the scalp. Often, there is a central, enlarged hair follicle cavity filled with keratin or a number of fine white hairs.

Treatment is by excision if cosmetically unacceptable.
