Pubmed ID





Microcystic adenexal carcinoma is a rare, locally aggressive, malignant appendage tumor also known as sclerosing sweat duct carcinoma. Since widespread recognition of microcystic adenexal carcinoma as a distinct clinicopathologic entity, approximately 300 total cases have been reported in the literature, with only eight previous cases reported in children under the age of 18, with no reported cases in patients younger than 6 years old. Our patient is unique in that the lesion was present at birth, making this the youngest case of microcystic adenexal carcinoma reported.
