Abstract

A wide variety of sweat gland tumors occur in the eyelids. We used light and electron microscopy to investigate an eccrine acrospiroma showing areas of oncocytic, apocrine and sebaceous differentiation. To our knowledge this is the first report of an oncocytic lesion arising from an eccrine sweat gland, and only the second report of such a lesion arising from the skin. Furthermore, apocrine and sebaceous differentiation are atypical in lesions originating from sweat glands. The wide spectrum of differentiation in this adenoma lends further support to the concept of pluripotentiality of the adnexal glandular epithelia.
