Abstract :

 T Objective: The aim of this study was to correlate skin adnexal tumors with age, sex, and location and to determine its incidence in the Department of Pathology at Kurnool Medical College, Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh. Material and Methods: 60 cases were included in this study from June 2010 to June 2016 with respect to incidence of adnexal tumors, age, and sex distribution. All the slides were stained with haematoxylin and eosin and then findings were corroborated with special stains like PAS and reticulin wherever required. Results: 81.66% (49/60) were benign and 18.33% (11/60) were malignant adnexal tumors. Sweat gland tumors constituted the largest group 48.33% (29/60), followed by the hair follicle tumors 33.33% (20/60) and sebaceous gland tumors 18.33%(11/60). Overall male: female ratio was 1: 1.22. The commonest age group was 41–50 years and the commonest affected body part was head and neck region (65%, 39/60) followed by trunk (13.33, 08/60). Trichoepithelioma and Nodular hidradenoma were commonest benign tumors and sebaceous carcinoma, commonest malignant tumor seen. Conclusion: The incidence of benign skin adnexal tumors were more as compared to the malignant tumors. Malignant tumors were seen in older age group, usually over 50 years of age.
