DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
- Heterogeneous group of tumours that originate from the epithelium of the sebaceous gland. With a rather monomorphic and uncharacteristic clinical picture they show an extraordinarily large histological variability, which often makes their exact classification difficult. In addition, there are difficulties due to the different nomenclature. The diagnosis "adnexal tumor with sebaceous gland differentiation" is generally a histological random diagnosis.
- EMA (epithelial membrane antigen) marking can be useful for differentiation of sebocytes.
ClassificationThis section has been translated automatically.
The classification presented here is essentially based on the morphological criteria developed on the HE section.
- Benign sebaceous growths:
- Malignant sebaceous growths:
