Lymph node metastasis from non-melanoma skin cancer

The management of non-melanoma skin cancers metastatic to the neck is challenging due to variability in biological behavior and patterns of regional lymphatic spread, and novel systemic therapies are showing promising results.

Head and Neck Porocarcinoma: SEER Analysis of Epidemiology and Survival

Head and neck porocarcinoma affects more males than females and regional or distant metastatic rates are low and overestimated in previous literature, and disease-specific mortality is low.



Eccrine Porocarcinoma: New Insights and a Systematic Review of the Literature

This systematic review of individual patient data reveals that all patients should have a histological diagnosis with imaging considered for high-risk cases, and primary tumor location should also be considered in diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making.

Malignant adnexal tumors of the skin: a single institution experience

Younger patients had better OS and RFS, and absence of nodal metastasis translated to better RFS and DSS, than older patients.

Eccrine Porocarcinoma (Malignant Eccrine Poroma): A Clinicopathologic Study of 69 Cases

This report, the largest series of eccrine porocarcinoma to date, suggests that the incidence of aggressive behavior is less than popularly believed and can display a wide variety of histologic patterns that may lead to diagnostic error in the unwary.

Chemotherapy of rare skin adnexal tumors: a review of literature.

The purpose of the present review is to discuss the treatment of malignant neoplasms of cutaneous adnexae and to suggest some future therapeutic options based on targeted-therapy.

Sentinel Node Biopsy for Staging of Aggressive Digital Papillary Adenocarcinoma

The first reported case of staging lymph nodes in a patient with aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma utilizing sentinel lymph node mapping and biopsy is described.

Survival after resection of cutaneous adnexal carcinomas with eccrine differentiation: Risk factors and trends in outcomes

A population‐based study was performed to determine prognostic factors and survival in cutaneous adnexal carcinomas with eccrine differentiation.

Surgery and Adjuvant Radiation for High-risk Skin Adnexal Carcinoma of the Head and Neck

Surgery and adjuvant radiation for high-risk SAC offers excellent locoregional control with acceptable toxicity and there was 1 acute grade 3 toxicity and no greater than or equal to grade 2 late toxicities were recorded.

The Risk of Lymph Node Involvement in Malignant Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors

Despite being one of the largest reported analyses of MCATs, this study is limited by the small number of subjects and sentinel lymph node biopsy may best be applied selectively, possibly only in patients with local recurrence.

Aggressive Digital Papillary Adenocarcinoma: Population-Based Analysis of Incidence, Demographics, Treatment, and Outcomes

A population-based study of ADPA incidence and outcomes with a subgroup comparison of patients with localized versus regional disease, finding that Aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma is a rare malignancy with increasing incidence.

Sentinel lymph node analysis in patients with sweat gland carcinoma

The authors explored the use of SLNB in patients with primary sweat gland carcinomas (SGCs) with a focus oninel lymph node mapping and biopsy.
