The MUC1 core was weakly positive in the apical membrane of the predominant cuboidal epithelial cell component, and negative in the columnar mucinous cell component.
It is characterized as being a smaller duct made up of low cuboidal epithelial cells, presenting a round central nucleus (Fig.
Composed of tubules of tall cuboidal epithelial cells arranged into acini, these glands secrete extrapallial fluid in which shell formation occurs by emptying to the surface directly without a duct (Wilbur 1972).
The acini had 1-4 layers of columnar or cuboidal epithelial cells and were moderately dilated.

There were numerous nests of polygonal cells and interconnecting tubuloalveolar structures lined by two layers of cuboidal epithelial cells (Fig.
Histopathological evaluation of the cyst showed the wall formed by only a single layer of cuboidal epithelial cells over a basement membrane formed by loose stroma and collagen fibers.

(3,4,7) Two histopathologic subtypes have been described: Chondroid syringomas of apocrine origin exhibit ducts, with lumina lined by two layers of epithelial cells; those of eccrine origin characteristically have ducts lined by a single layer of flattened, cuboidal epithelial cells.
