Skin adnexal tumours are a heterogeneous group of uncommon and rare tumours usually misdiagnosed
clinically due to different types and similar presentation. They include a diverse group of benign and
malignant neoplasms. They may present as single or multiple lesions and can be sporadic or familial in
inheritance. They might be a superficial manifestation of an internal malignancy. Benign lesions are more
common but malignant tumours are rare and locally aggressive, with potential nodal and distant metastasis
with a poor clinical outcome. Histopathology is the basis of critical diagnosis, which has therapeutic and
prognostic implications. Here we report a case series of skin adnexal tumours with aggressive behaviour on
histopathology which appeared benign clinically. This case series emphasises the need for early detection
and proper follow up of skin adnexal tumours to reduce the morbidity and mortality.

Keywords: Adnexal Tumours, Benign, Histopathology, Malignant, Skin.
