The Developmental Rarity- Basaloid Follicular Hamartoma

Anubha Bajaj*

Basaloid follicular hamartoma is cogitated as an exceptional, benign, cutaneous, hair follicular hamartoma essentially engendering solitary, linear or diffusely disseminated papules and plaques. Brown et al initially scripted and characterized basaloid follicular hamartoma in 1969 as a generalized follicle hamartoma with significant basaloid cell proliferation ambiguously confined to the entire hair follicle. Antecedent lesions were composed of multiple, flesh coloured, hyper-pigmented papules with dissemination upon the face, neck, trunk, extremities, scalp, nasolabial fold, peri-orbital area, palmar and solar pits along with concurrence of diffuse alopecia, milia, comedones, myasthenia gravis or various inherited syndromes. Basaloid follicular hamartoma as a terminology was initially adopted by Mehregan in 1985 which essentially describes a novel, cutaneous adnexal neoplasm which can arise spontaneously or is associated with an underlying disorder or a distinct, inherited syndrome.
