Overview

NCI Definition: A carcinoma arising from the sebaceous glands, sweat glands, or the hair follicles. Representative examples include sebaceous carcinoma, apocrine carcinoma, eccrine carcinoma, and pilomatrical carcinoma. [1]

Adnexal carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, PTCH1, KMT2D, NOTCH1, and ARID1A [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Adnexal Carcinoma

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, KMT2D Mutation, and PTCH1 Mutation are the most common alterations in adnexal carcinoma [2].
