Papillary Eccrine Adenoma

Papillary Eccrine Adenoma

Senait W. Dyson, MD

Low-power examination shows a dermal adnexal tumor with variably sized ductal and glandular spaces associated with a fibrous stroma.

On high magnification, the glands show low-cuboidal eccrine cells image and areas with cribriforming and papillary projection of variable complexity image. (Courtesy J. McNiff, MD.)



  • Papillary eccrine adenoma (PEA)


  • Tubulopapillary hidradenoma with eccrine differentiation


  • Rare benign adnexal tumor with evidence of eccrine derivation/differentiation

    • In the past, many cases with apocrine features were included in this category

    • However, most authorities now separate PEAs from tubular apocrine adenomas
