Adenoma of anogenital mammary-like glands

Pietro Donau, Ada Amantea

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors describe a benign adenomatous neoplasm arising from anogenital mammary-like glands. These glands have been recently recognized in the anogenital region and may play an important role in the development of some neoplastic disorders peculiar to this anatomical area. Important features of the tumor are adenomatous tubular and cystic structures with apocrine-like cytologic features, a lobular configuration, and abundant fibrous stroma.
