Excessive trichilemmal keratinisation (flame follicles) in endocrine skin disorders of the dog

Excessive trichilemmal keratinisation (flame follicles) in endocrine skin disorders of the dog

Veterinary Dermatology 1(1): 37-40

Excessive trichilemmal keratinization (flame follicle formation) was observed in the skin biopsies from 61 of 403 (15.1%) dogs with endocrine skin disease. Flame follicles occurred in dogs with hypothyroidism, hyperadrenocorticism, hyposomatotropism, Sertoli's cell neoplasm with feminisation and castration-responsive dermatosis.
