Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma: A case report and dermoscopic findings

Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma (PCACC) is an extremely rare tumor, which predominates in the face/head/neck, particularly in the salivary glands and is associated with characteristic histological features. In many tissue including the salivary glands, breast, esophagus, auditory canal, breast, uterus, cervix, bartholin gland, prostate, and skin this condition has been reported. PCACC affects men and women equally, and the etiology remains uncertain. Initial diagnosis of PCACC progresses slowly, expanding, firm, skin-colored nodule with locally invasive. To our knowledge, this is the first case of PCACC describing dermatoscopic features of this rare condition.
