Dermatol Sinica 22 : 153-158, 2004

A 36-year-old woman came to our OPD with presentation of a solitary, indurated, nonpainful subcutaneous plaque on the left nipple area for 2 months. There was neither discharge nor ulceration. Axillary’s lymph node was not palpable. Histopathological examination directed the diagnosis to microcystic adnexal carcinoma. A wide excision was performed with negative margin. The preoperative and intraoperatove investigations of sentinel lymph node in axilla was not involved. No recurrence was noticed in 16-month follow-up. We represent a case of microcystic adnexal carcinoma in an unusual location. Diagnosis of microcystic adnexal carcinoma should be taken into account in a nipple nodule or a breast lump.
