    Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma is a rare benign adnexal tumor that usually presents as an asymptomatic, firm, annular plaque. It most commonly occurs on sun-exposed areas in middle-aged women, especially on the face. Patients typically give a history of a single, slow-growing lesion that has been present for several years. The diagnosis of desmoplastic trichoepithelioma can be made when a triad of microscopic findings are observed in combination with a compatible clinical picture. We herein report a case of desmoplastic trichoepithelioma associated with syringomas on the face of a young woman.
