cutaneous lymphadenoma

Tuesday 28 June 2016

Cutaneous lymphadenoma is a rare tumor with distinctive histologic features. This entity was originally described as lymphoepithelial tumor by Santa Cruz and Barr in 1987. It was renamed cutaneous lymphadenoma in 1991.

The histologic findings include basaloid proliferation and intraepithelial lymphocytes.

The usual initial clinical diagnosis is basal cell carcinoma localized mainly to the head and neck area. The incidence is approximately equal in male and female patients. Excision of this benign neoplasm is curative. Controversy exists regarding the histogenesis of this tumor.
