Proliferating trichilemmal tumors are rare tumors that originate from adnexal structures – specifically from the outer root sheaths of hair follicles. These tumors can be benign or malignant. We report a rare case of a giant aggressive forehead trichilemmal tumor that was paradoxically benign on pathology. It was surgically excised and followed-up for 15 years.

Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
