Abstract

Microcystic adnexal carcinoma, also known as sclerosing sweat duct carcinoma, is a recently described cutaneous adnexal tumor characterized by a locally aggressive growth pattern. In this report, we review a recurrent case of microcystic adnexal carcinoma treated by Mohs micrographic surgery and will evaluate the current treatment options for this unusual adnexal neoplasm. As suggested by a review of the literature, an immunocompromised status may be associated with a more biologically aggressive malignancy.
