Pure apocrine nevus: a case report

Tahani Alharbi, Abdulsalam Aodah, Rawan Alghamdi.

Abstract
Apocrine nevi are highly uncommon tumours typically located in the reticular dermis and comprising elevated numbers of mature apocrine glands and ductal structures inside a fibrous stroma. Most seen in the axillae and sometimes in the scalp or parasternal region, apocrine nevi present clinically as solitary or multiple nodules. A case of a 26-year-old male patient with a history of bilateral axillary swelling for 2 months is reported. The ultrasound picture initially showed an accessory breast that was excised surgically. A diagnosis of pure apocrine nevus was supported by the histological picture.

Key words: pure apocrine nevus, axillary mass, accessory breast
