ROISMANN, Miguel et al. Trichilemmal carcinoma: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.5, pp. 991-994. ISSN 0365-0596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000500019.
The trichilemmal carcinoma is a rare tumor that usually occurs on sun-exposed skin, especially on the face, scalp, neck and back of hands, mainly in elderly subjects but commonly between the 4th and 9th decades of life. It is not a gender-based illness. This study shows a difficult to treat case of recurrent trichilemmal carcinoma on the same location of a basal-cell carcinoma previously treated with surgery and radiotherapy.
