Abstract

Nodular hidradenomas is an uncommon benign skin tumor which arises as nodules from eccrine sweat glands. It is more common in adults. We present here a case of nodular hidradenoma in inguinal region with complaints of oozing in a middle aged female. Cytological diagnosis was suggestive of adnexal tumor and final confirmation was based on histopathology aided with immunohistochemistry. The case is presented to highlight the significance of cytology in the initial diagnosis of this lesion if correlated carefully with clinical presentation along with typical cytological features.

Keywords: Hidradenoma, Cytology, Inguinal, Histopathology, Immunohistrochemistry.
