Abstract

Hidradenocarcinoma is a rare malignant cutaneous adnexal tumor associated with a high propensity for local recurrence and subclinical metastasis, thus necessitating timely identification and treatment. This case report is being presented to highlight the relatively benign presentation of this disease, as well as an approach for treatment. This patient was a 50 year old Asian male with no past medical history with a progressively enlarging raised scalp lesion. In office excision was performed, with following pathology revealing hidradenocarcinoma. The patient subsequently underwent wide local excision with sentinel lymph node biopsy. The margins were widely negative and the sentinel node was also negative. Follow up CT has demonstrated no distant metastases.
