Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Microcystic adnexal carcinoma of the skin is a very rare malignant tumour arising from the sweat glands. As far as we know, the MRI features of this tumour have not been described in the literature before. In this report we present the MRI features and pathological description of a case of a microcystic adnexal carcinoma in the cheek that was incidentally imaged during brain MRI examination. A review of the relevant literature as well as a discussion of MRI of skin tumours is also presented.
