  • Differently defined generic term for neoplasms with apocrine differentiation. For practical reasons this term is limited to adenomas with glandular differentiation. Apocrine adenomas can express either a tubular or a papillary tissue pattern or a combination of both.
  • Tubular, papillary or tubulo-papillary adenomas with clear apocrine differentiation may develop in the glandular parenchyma of the breast. Apocrine adenomas in continuity with the nipple show a tubulo-papillary pattern and are called nipple adenoma or erosive adenomatosis of the nipple.
