Abstract
Perifollicular fibroma(PFF) is a rare cutaneous hamartoma that shows differ entiation in the connective tissue sheath of the hair follicle. It may be s ingle (congenital or acquired) or multiple (late onset). We report a 14-yea r-old Korean boy with a congenital solitary PFF on the face, which supports the nevoid concept of origin rather than a reactive response to injury. (C ) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
