Background: Skin adnexal neoplasms are relatively rare and thus uncommonly encountered in routine pathology practice.
Aims: The present study was conducted with the aim to diagnose various skin adnexal tumors on fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) followed by confirmation on histopathology and immunohistochemistry of the excised tumor.
Materials And Methods: A total of 11 cases of superficial nodular swellings of the skin were studied over a period of 2 years from 2015 to 2016. Read More

Trichoepithelioma is a benign tumor which can be easily confused with basal cell carcinoma. Since both tumors are histologically similar, it is important to distinguish them correctly as the courses for treatment are very different. Basal cell carcinoma is malignant; therefore, it requires total surgical excision, including a wide healthy margin. Read More

Benign eyelid tumors derived from hair follicles are rare and frequently misdiagnosed as basal-cell carcinoma when evaluation is based on clinical evidence alone. The discrepancy between the clinical aspect and the histological diagnosis can be as high as 30-40%, even for experienced clinicians. Unfortunately, this masquerade is not only clinical but also histological. Read More

Rationale: Trichoepithelioma (TE) is a rare benign skin tumor that originates from the hair follicle epithelium. Although skin lesions arising from scar tissues are mostly malignant, the development of a benign tumor such as TE is a rare event.
Patient Concerns: A 28-year-old male patient who had a scar on the left cheek which arose 10 years ago because of a chemical burn visited our hospital. Read More

Primary cutaneous osteosarcoma is an exceedingly rare malignant mesenchymal neoplasm of the skin which produces bone, osteoid, or chondroid material and does not involve the underlying bone. The most common site for extraskeletal osteosarcoma is in the deep soft tissues of the thigh, upper extremities, and retroperitoneum; however, it may occur anywhere in the body. Involvement of the skin is rare and when it does occur it is more commonly due to metastatic disease rather than a primary malignancy. Read More

Mutations in the tumor suppressor gene CYLD underlie phenotypically heterogeneous hereditary tumor disorders of the skin appendages. These diseases are inherited autosomal dominantly and include Brooke-Spiegler syndrome (BSS; OMIM 605041), familial cylindromatosis (FC; OMIM 132700) and multiple familial trichoepithelioma (MFT; OMIM 601606). Clinically, cylindromas, trichoepitheliomas and spiradenomas can be found in affected individuals. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer in humans worldwide. Many highly specific dermoscopic criteria for BCC are well established in the literature. On the contrary, other malignant or benign skin tumors may mimic BCC by exhibiting similar or even the same dermoscopic features and therefore obscuring the diagnosis of BCC in certain situations.

Background: The distinction of trichoepithelioma from basal cell carcinoma in small superficial biopsies is important but often challenging. This has inspired many scientists to test the validity of immunohistochemical markers in the differential diagnosis.

Background And Objectives: The histological differential diagnosis between benign trichogenic skin tumors and basal cell carcinoma may be challenging. We therefore set out to investigate whether expression of CD10, a cell surface protein with neutral endopeptidase activity, might be a suitable marker for the histological differential diagnosis of trichogenic skin tumors.
Patients And Methods: We immunohistochemically analyzed 119 cases of benign trichogenic skin tumors and basal cell carcinoma. Read More

Ber-EP4 has been the traditional immunostain used for the detection of basaloid skin tumors. Recently, MOC-31 has shown be superior to Ber-EP4 in the detection of basosquamous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and many centers are now using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 antibodies together to detect these lesions. The objective of this study was to compare the utility of using both Ber-EP4 and MOC-31 immunostains in the detection of basaloid skin tumors and to better characterize the previously unknown staining properties of MOC-31 in cutaneous lesions.

Context: - Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human malignant neoplasm and is a frequently encountered diagnosis in dermatopathology. Although BCC may be locally destructive, it rarely metastasizes. Many diagnostic entities display morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with BCC, including nonneoplastic processes, such as follicular induction over dermatofibroma; benign follicular tumors, such as trichoblastoma, trichoepithelioma, or basaloid follicular hamartoma; and malignant tumors, such as sebaceous carcinoma or Merkel cell carcinoma.

Knowledge of staining pattern of certain immunostains might be useful in the classification of cutaneous adnexal tumors that can have clinical importance. We studied GATA3 and MYB expression in archival materials of 220 adnexal tumors comprised of sebaceous carcinomas, follicular tumors, apocrine carcinoma, predominantly apocrine tumors, predominantly eccrine tumors, and others including adenoid cystic carcinomas. Nuclear GATA3 expression was seen in 70% (153/220) of cases, including sebaceous carcinoma (93%), apocrine carcinoma (93%), follicular neoplasms (100%), and predominantly apocrine neoplasms (69%), yet only 38% of predominantly eccrine neoplasms.

Background: Follicular tumors and cysts are common skin lesions in dogs. Both are distinguished based on their cellular origin (matrical, isthmus, or infundibular cells) and the type of keratin they produce.

Background: Fibroepithelioma of Pinkus (FeP) is considered a variant of basal cell carcinoma (BCC); however, in the past 20 years, some researchers have argued for its classification as a trichoblastoma.
