    ..Otherwise, it could be a hitherto undescribed variant of apocrine carcinoma. This apocrine carcinoma on the forehead may have originated from either pluripotential cells or from apocrine glands at an unusual site. ..

    ..Both FF/TD and FP are hamartomas composed of perifollicular or interfollicular connective tissue and a hair follicular epithelial component, which may be caused by an abnormal functioning of the hair follicle bulge cells. ..

    ..Thus, the present case may suggest that PEN can show extensive myxoid change or may demonstrate a relationship between PEN and nerve sheath myxoma. ..

    ..Although most sebaceomas can be distinguished from other lesions, there are problematic cases. We discuss the histopathologic diagnostic problems associated with sebaceoma and also argue in favor of the concept of sebaceous adenoma...
  9. Misago N, Ogusu Y, Narisawa Y. Keloidal basal cell carcinoma after radiation therapy. Eur J Dermatol. 2004;14:182-5 pubmed
    ..There was no radiation fibrosis around the keloidal BCC. We discuss the differences between keloidal BCC and morpheiform BCC, and consider keloidal BCC to be a rare variant of BCC from a clinico- pathological basis...

    ..Cellular neurothekeomas have been reported to show negative immunohistochemical staining for histiocytic markers, and PG-M1 is now considered to be the most reliable histiocytic marker...
