Abstract

The clincopathologic features of microcystic adnexal carcinoma are presented. Microcystic adnexal carcinoma is a recently described, very rare neoplasm characterized by a locally aggressive growth pattern, and as far as we know, only two reports on the microcystic adnexal carcinoma have been published in the Korean literature. Recently we experienced two cases of microcystic adnexal carcimoma occurred in a 32-year-old male and 27-year-old female patient. They had 2.5 x 2.0 x 2.0 cm and 1.2 x 0.9 x 0.9 cm sized, slowly growing mass in the glabella and below the lower lip, respectively. The immunohistochemical staining for CEA antigen stains the glandular structures but not pilar structures. So we thinked that this tumor would be originated from primitive adnexal cells differentiating into both pilar and eccrine structures.
