sebaceous epithelioma
a benign tumor of sebaceous glands that is histologically similar to basal cell tumor.

sebaceous adenoma
particularly common in the skin of aged dogs. On the eyelids they arise from the meibomian glands.

sebaceous gland
holocrine glands in the skin that secrete sebum usually through the hair follicles. They vary in size and activity between species and location. In dogs, large sebaceous glands are located on the dorsum of the tail (see tail gland) and at mucocutaneous junctions. In cats, large glands are located also on the dorsum of the tail, on the lip margins and under the chin (see submental organ).
sebaceous gland secretion abnormality
includes sebolith, seborrhea.
