Hair Follicle Tumors in a Case of Multiple Hamartoma Syndrome (MHS)
The following symptoms were present in a 69-year-old woman who consulted our hospital: multiple epithelial tumors on the face and in the neck region, some different nonepithelial tumors predominantly on the other integument, follicular thyroid adenoma which showed focal transformation into a carcinoma, diverticulosis of the gastrointestinal tract, an ovarian cyst and a marked kyphoscoliosis. The diagnosis of a multiple hamartoma syndrome (MHS) was made.
