Adnexal neoplasms are a wide group of lesions and are relatively rare, classified on their line of differentiation towards hair follicle, sebaceous glands or sweat glands. Histopathology remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of these lesions. Aim is to study the spectrum of skin adnexal tumors in our institution with respect to age, sex, location, histopathology and incidence of malignant neoplasms. Ours is a retrospective analysis of histopathologically diagnosed adnexal tumors in a tertiary hospital. In a span of 2 yrs, 24 adnexal tumors were diagnosed on histopathological examination and are categorized based on WHO classification. In our study 8 (33.3%) tumors are of follicular differentiation, Sebaceous differentiation are 3 (12.5%), Apocrine differentiation are only 1 (4.2%), Eccrine differentiation are the highest in occurrence, 11 (45.8%) and 1 (4.2%) case of Paget disease of nipple.
