Apocrine cystadenoma, apocrine hidrocystoma, and eccrine hidrocystoma: three distinct tumors defined by expression of keratins and human milk fat globulin 1.

Eccrine hidrocystomas and apocrine cystadenomas are morphologically related cystic sweat gland tumors. To elucidate their cellular differentiation we examined by immunohistochemistry the expression of keratins and of human milk fat globulin 1 in 12 of each of these tumors, diagnosed using established conventional histological criteria. All tumors diagnosed… CONTINUE READING
