Malignant nodular hidradenoma of the eyelid: a rare sweat gland tumor.

Al Baghli A, Reddy SS, Reddy MA - Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol (2010)

Bottom Line: We report a case of malignant nodular hidradenoma in a middle-aged man, who presented with a nodular swelling in the eyelid.The tumor was similar to its benign counterpart but had additional features such as surface ulceration, numerous mitiotic figures, and an infiltrative growth pattern.Malignant forms of hidradenomas are unusual and the possibility this variant should be considered in the differential diagnosis of eyelid tumors.

Figure 0002: Tumor cells within hyalinized stroma (H and E, ×200)

Mentions: A complete, wide excision of the nodular mass with a 3 mm clear margin of healthy surrounding tissue was performed along with primary closure [Figure 2]. The pathology service identified malignant nodular hidradenoma, a rare eccrine sweat gland tumor (described below). At the last visit, 6 months after excision, there was no recurrence of the lesion. The patient was subsequently lost to follow up.
