Cytokeratin 15 stain is also strongly positive. CK15 is a marker of the stem cells in the hair follicle bulge area. This finding favours microcystic adnexal carcinoma. Hoang et al found 92% of MAC and 100 % of desmoplastic trichoepitheliomata expressed CK15 whilst morphoeic BCC and squamous cell carcinomata were all negative. Thus this is a helpful marker to distinguish MAC from morphoeic BCC with adnexal differentiation [6]. (Copyright: ©2014 Inskip, Magee.)
