Adnexal skin tumors are rare neoplasms that develop from hair follicles, sebaceous glands and sweat glands. In the majority of cases these tumors are benign, although metastases have been reported in rare occasion. The diagnosis in always histologic and often it is sufficient to report the lesion simply as benign or malignant. Radical surgery is the treatment of choice. When the tumor is large, the Mohs technique can be used. Local recurrence is frequent in case of incomplete surgical removal. Etastatic disease, although rare, has a poor prognosis. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy experience is very limited. Overall, combination chemotherapy seems to be superior to single agent treatment.
