Trichilemmal carcinoma is a rare hair follicle tumor that arises due to malignant transformation of a benign trichilemmoma. It develops from the outer root sheath of the hair follicle and is found on areas that are exposed to the sun, particularly on the face, ears, scalp, forehead, neck, etc. It’s mostly seen in women who are over 40 years of age. It rarely metastasizes to other sites. It is a tan or fleshcolored spot that may resemble a wart. Here we report a very rare case of Trichilemmal carcinoma of right thigh which has an insidious clinical course.
