Not every sebaceous nevus advances to the third stage, which is characterized by the transformation of skin appendages into secondary neoplasms--namely, papilliferous syringadenomas and basal cell carcinomas.
(3, 4) Jones and Heyl studied 140 cases of sebaceous nevi and found that nearly 20% transformed into papilliferous syringadenomas. They also found that the incidence of basal cell carcinoma was less than half the rate that had been reported by Mehregan and Pinkus (6 and 14%, respectively).
