Apocrine fibroadenoma of the perianal region associated with perianal fistula.

Ekci B, Gokce O, Ozkan F - J Clin Med Res (2010)

Bottom Line: In addition, the lesion had both glandular and stromal growth patterns and active chronic inflammation in the background.Malignant or benign counterparts of these types of lesions are widely described in literature.Therefore, it is crucial for the pathologists and clinicians to be aware of such lesions.

ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: A case of a 45 year-old woman who presented with a perianal fistula was reported. Histologically, the excised lesion showed features of apocrine fibroadenoma. In addition, the lesion had both glandular and stromal growth patterns and active chronic inflammation in the background. Malignant or benign counterparts of these types of lesions are widely described in literature. However fistula does not usually accompany and is very rare. Therefore, it is crucial for the pathologists and clinicians to be aware of such lesions. The relationship between apocrine fibroadenoma and perianal region was also discussed.

Figure 1: Localization of the perianal fistula tract.

Mentions: A 45 year-old woman presented to the hospital with a chronic perianal fistula. During physical examination, a previous hemorroidectomy incision scar and a perianal fistula orifice at the end of this scar was observed both located at 11 o’clock of the anal verge (Fig. 1). The fistula was not in relationship with anal sphincter, and internal orifice of the fistula was located 2 cm distally in the anal canal (Fig. 2). Her past surgical history included hemorroidectomy one year ago. The patient’s family history was not significant. Fistulectomy was performed and the patient was discharged after the day of operation. The lesion was examined microscopically, and immunostaining was also performed. The pathological examination of the patient’s specimen revealed that the tissue sections exhibited a morphologic pattern similar to the mammary fibroadenoma.
