The fibrofolliculoma is another cutaneous neoplasm that in the solitary form [JAAD 1984;11;361] is not inherited but when multiple [JAAD 1984;17;493], may be inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. When multiple, it may be a part of the Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome.
- Some think fibrofolliculomas and trichodiscomas are variants of the same neoplasm.
A flesh-colored papule with a central depression or plug is characteristic.
See Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome for treatment options.
