Eccrine Ductal Carcinoma:

Eccrine ductal carcinoma is an exceedingly rare malignant sweat gland neoplasm composed of multiple ductal structures lined by pleomorphic cuboidal cells. 

  

The tumour has an infiltrative pattern.

Focal solid and cribriform areas are also present.

Mitotic activity is prominent.

There is usually no evidence of decapitation secretion.

 

Differential diagnosis:  Primary and metastatic ductal carcinoma of breast and salivary gland.


Squamoid Eccrine Ductal Carcinoma:

Cutaneous adnexal tumour showing features of eccrine ductal differentiation that are characterized by a prominent squamoid component.

The tumours usually presents as solitary dermal nodules on the head and neck areas and the extremities in elderly patients.

Microscopic features:  The tumour is characterized by a prominent squamous proliferation with atypia, keratinous cyst formation and squamous eddies which seem to merge with areas showing eccrine ductal differentiation, including ductular formations in continuity with eccrine ductal epithelium.
