Trichoepithelioma is very rare and benign skin lesion. It is arising from hair follicles. [1] This slowly growing cutaneous tumour most commonly arises on the face and scalp, neck and trunk, and usually presents clinically as single or multiple nodules. It is exceptionally rare on the vulva. Vulvar trichoepithelioma has complex histologic patterns. It originates in appendages that simulate malignancy. [2] There were only a few previous reports of cases, of such a tumour occuring on the vulva [1-3].
