Pattern 3: Blue Basaloid Proliferation in Dermis Spiradenoma and Cylindroma
The main diseases that should be excluded are some malign diseases such as lymphoma, Kaposi's sarcoma, angiosarcoma, neck metastasis of malign tumors, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberance, cylindroma as well as some benign conditions such as hemangioma, pyogenic granuloma, Kikuchi disease, Mikulicz disease, angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy, ESAH and parasite diseases such as toxoplasmosis that may also cause increases in serum IgE levels and blood eosinophil counts (2-4,8,11).
Other histopathological findings include proliferating trichilemmal cyst, neurofibroma, dermoid cyst, pilomatricoma, cylindroma, apocrine cystadenoma, fibroepithelial polyp, folliculitis, folliculitis decalvans and inflamed fistula tract.
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant salivary gland tumor that was first described by Billroth in 1859 and gave the term cylindroma attributing to its cribriform appearance formed by the tumor cells with cylindrical pseudolumina or pseudospaces.
A histologic diagnosis of cylindroma was rendered based upon examination of routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained histologic sections and a supplemental periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain.
ACC was previously termed cylindroma, initially described by Billroth in 1856 with the first description of breast ACC, credited to Geschickter in 1945 (6-9).
Expression of p53 and TP53 mutational analysis in malignant neoplasms arising in preexisting spiradenoma, cylindroma, and spiradenocylindroma, sporadic or associated with Brooke-Spiegler syndrome.
Ceruminous adenoma, also called ceruminoma, ceruminal adenorna, apocrine adenoma, or even cylindroma in the past (the latter three terms are discouraged) is a benign glandular neoplasm of ceruminous glands (modified apocrine sweat glands) that arises solely from the external auditory canal.
Now scientists have identified the malfunctioning CYLD gene which, when working normally, prevents the cylindroma tumours from forming.
(122) Rarely, BCC may display prominent, thick, fibrous stroma mimicking cylindroma. (4) Matrical differentiation may raise consideration for pilomatrical carcinoma.
The first case of ACC of the cervix was reported as a cylindroma in 1949 [2].
