PAPILLARY HIDRADENOMA OF VULVA: A RARE CASE PRESENTATION

Dr Kafil Akhtar, Dr Mohd Rafey, Dr Rana K Sherwani, Dr Zehra Mohsin

Abstract


Papillary hidradenomas in the vulva arises from specialized anogenital mammary-like glands in and around the intralabial sulcus. These are benign lesions, which present as slow growing, circumscribed cystic masses. Histologically, papillary hidradenomas are characterized by glandular structures and complex branching papillae with fibrovascular stalks. The glands are lined by myoepithelial cells and epithelial secretory cells with a surrounding fibrous stroma. Oestrogen and progesterone receptors are potential markers to differentiate between anogenital sweat glands and conventional sweat glands. We intend to present a case of excoriating papillary hidradenoma of vulva in a 23-year old female with review of literature.

Key words:  Papillary hidradenoma, Vulva, Benign Tumor.
