Abstract

[Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) and sebaceous carcinoma (SC) are rare adnexal neoplasms. MAC most commonly presents as a poorly defined, firm, skin-colored papule, nodule, or plaque on the head and neck. Although locally destructive, MAC does not typically metastasize. Rates of misdiagnosis are high, due to incomplete, superficial sampling. Resection techniques with meticulous margin control, including Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), are recommended in the management of MAC.]
