ABSTRACT
A primary skin adenoid cystic carcinoma first described by Boggio in 1975, is one of the rarest type of eccrine sweat gland carcinoma. Histologically, a tumor with typical morphologic features closely resembles adenoid cystic carcinoma was found in other tissues but in the skin must be distinguished from aggressive basal cell carcinoma. The natural history of this tumor is not yet fully determined but suggests a long indolent and progressive course. We report a case of a 77-year-old male with a small skin nodule in the abdomen.
