However, in this study, trichoepithelioma was compared with BCC, which comprised the largest group of adnexal tumors
of a follicular origin.
R] This study was therefore undertaken to analyze adnexal tumors
of the skin for their morphological, clinical, and histological features and to group them using the International Classification of World Health Organization (2006).
Of note is the high level of expression of GATA3 in skin adnexal tumors
(similar to GCDFP-15 and mammaglobin).
The case of a female adnexal tumor
of probable wolffian origin in a 15-year-old girl may offer insight into a new treatment option for a rare disease.
CD10 was evaluated in adnexal tumors

Mutations in exon 3 of the CTNNB1 gene (b-catenin gene) in cutaneous adnexal tumors
7) Since parasitic leiomyoma are separated from the uterus, they are easily mistaken for adnexal tumors
such as ovarian tumors.
In addition to several benign adnexal tumors
, the authors (22) analyzed 4 MACs and 3 ECs (1 of the latter with mucinous differentiation) as well as a case of hidradenocarcinoma and 2 cases of trichilemmal carcinomas.
In our institution we studied 59 cases of skin adnexal tumors
during the period of 2004-2014, of which 7 were pilomatricoma.
Importantly, primary eccrine cancers can present without the general features of benign adnexal tumors
and are less-readily distinguished from hidradenocarcinomas.
