SALAZAR MADRIGAL, Kenneth  and  ALFARO CHAVES, Hazel Noelia. Multiple family trichoepithelioma. Case study. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.103-105.  Epub July 26, 2021. ISSN 2386-8201.

Trichoepithelioma is a rare benign tumour originating from the hair follicle. It can take a single or multiple form. The multiple form has a sporadic or family presentation. Multiple family trichoepithelioma appears during adolescence and presents as gradual multiple neoformations that are confluent and deforming on the face, which could trigger anxiety disorders in the young people affected. Diagnosis is by medical history and physical examination and the strategy must always be both medical and surgical. We report the case of a teenage girl diagnosed with familial multiple trichoepithelioma treated together with the psychiatry service.
