Fox-Fordyce disease is a condition with protean histopathological alterations whose pathogenesis remains a mystery. [...] Key Result In this study, we report 2 cases harboring prominent dilation of apocrine coils with mucinous content. Such mucinous content showed mucin profile identical to the dermal mucin deposits in both cases. Of note, perifollicular foamy histiocytes demonstrated cytoplasmic mucin, supporting the suggestion that these cells phagocytose apocrine secretion. Although not specific, apocrine…Expand
