Trichoadenoma is a rare, slowly growing benign follicular tumor, which is usually well differentiated and solitary. It was first described by Nikolowski in 1958. The lesion usually present as a non-specific nodule. The commonest sites are face, buttocks.(2) Herein We report a case of a 71 year-old female who presented with history of a solitary growth in the left cheek for 3 months which was insidious in onset and progressive in nature. No history of pain or discharge from the lesion. Clinically it was suspected to be a malignant melanoma and wide local excision of the lesion was done. The histological features showed a verrucous lesion with multiple cysts in the dermis which was proven to be that of a verrucous trichoadenoma, a rare variant of trichoadenoma.
