The miraDry system utilizes the Company's proprietary miraWave(TM) technology and is the first system to permanently eliminate apocrine
and eccrine glands in the axilla which are the cause of unwanted sweat and odor.
Zouboulis CC, Tsatsou F (2012) Disorders of the Apocrine
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), also known as acne inversa and Verneuil disease, is a chronic disease of the apocrine
gland-bearing areas of the skin (1).
Mutations in human TBX3 alter limb, apocrine
and genital development in ulnar-mammary syndrome.
These lesions, once believed to represent a disease of the sweat glands, now are thought to arise in the terminal hair follicles in the apocrine
gland-bearing areas of the body.
Cytologic criteria were Nuclear morphology (Large nuclei, Anisonucleosis, Hyperchromatic nuclei, Vesicular nuclei, Chromatin clumping, Prominent nucleoli, Multiple nucleoli), and Cellular morphology (Comet cells, Signet ring cells, Vacuolar cytoplasm, Granular cytoplasm, Apocrine
cells, Ractive ductal cells, Squamous cells).
1-3) Ceruminous glands are modified apocrine
glands of the external auditory meatus; they rarely give rise to malignant change.
In addition, apocrine
secretion of large cytoplasmic bubbles seems to occur in the apical portion.
Sweat glands atrophy, and apocrine
glands produce less oil, putting the older adult at risk for overheating and dry skin.
3,5,6,8,12,13,16) The presence of abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm suggests apocrine
differentiation, which is further confirmed by positivity with gross cystic disease fluid protein 15 (GCDFP-15), a marker of apocrine
Sweat caused by physical activity (internal thermal stress) and environmental heat (external thermal stress) are produced by secretions from the eccrine sweat gland, while stress (emotional) sweat is produced by secretions from the eccrine and apocrine
gland, and as this sweat mixes with bacteria on our skin, the result is a distinguishably foul odour," she said.
The separate lesion located at the 11:00 position 1 cm from the nipple was characterized by mostly benign breast tissue with apocrine
cysts, and focal ectatic ducts.
