fi·bro·fol·lic·u·lo·ma

(fī'brō-fŏ-lik'yū-lō'mă),
Small papular hamartomas of the fibrous sheath of the hair follicle, with solid extensions of the epithelium of the follicular infundibulum; multiple fibrofolliculomas may be familial.

fibrofolliculoma

/fi·bro·fol·lic·u·lo·ma/ (-fah-lik″-u-lo´mah) a benign tumor of the perifollicular connective tissue, occurring as one or more yellowish dome-shaped papules, usually on the face.

fibrofolliculoma

[-folik′yəlō′mə]
a benign tumor derived from the dermal part of a hair follicle. It may appear as a dome-shaped yellowish papule on the skin, accompanied by strands of follicular epithelium.

The benign tumors are: Trichofolliculoma, Pilar sheath acanthoma, Fibrofolliculoma, Trichodiscoma, Trichoepithelioma, Trichoblastoma, Trichoadenoma, Pilomartricoma, Trichilemmoma, Trichilemmal horn and Proliferating trichilemmal cyst.
Fibrofolliculoma is a typical skin finding in patients with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome.
85) Genetic predisposition to the development of ChRCC, particularly so-called hybrid oncocytic/chromophobe tumors that show overlapping features of oncocytoma and ChRCC, is seen in patients with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome, which is associated with germline folliculin (FLCN) mutations; these patients often develop multiple, bilateral, oncocytic renal neoplasms, including ChRCC, hybrid oncocytic/chromophobe tumors, and oncocytoma, and may also have characteristic skin (ie, fibrofolliculomas, trichodiscomas) and lung (ie, subpleural cystic blebs) findings.
40) Patients may also develop associated skin manifestations, including cutaneous fibrofolliculomas, trichodiscomas, and perifollicular fibromas, and are potentially at risk of melanoma.

Acrochordons are one of the components of Birt-Hogg-Dune syndrome, the other components being fibrofolliculomas and trichodiscomas.
This condition is associated with kidney cancer and is marked by benign fibrofolliculomas and trichodiscomas that most often occur on the head and neck.
Differential diagnosis: benign neoplasms like lipoma, fibroma, seborrheic keratosis, warts, fibrofolliculomas and malignant lesions like Angiomyxoma, Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
This includes the ocular and central nervous system hemangioblastomas, pheochromocytomas, or pancreatic tumors indicative of Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome and the fibrofolliculomas or pulmonary cysts often seen in Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome.
The other context in which hybrid tumors are frequently encountered is in patients with Birt-HoggDube (BHD) syndrome, an autosomal-dominant genodermatosis, characterized by fibrofolliculomas, lung cysts, and multifocal renal tumors that include hybrid tumors, ChRCC, clear cell RCC, papillary RCC, and RO.
Birt-Hogg-Dube (BHD) syndrome is a rare condition inherited in an autosomal-dominant fashion and characterized by unique skin lesions (multiple fibrofolliculomas, trichodiscomas, and acrochordons) and associated internal organ lesions, such as intestinal polyps, renal and lung cysts, and medullary thyroid carcinoma in the original description.
