Abstract

Introduction: Tumors of skin appendages represent a heterogeneous group of benign and malignant neoplasms with different morphological differentiation.

Material and Methods: A retrospective study of the skin appen- dages tumors diagnosed in the outpatient Department of Dermatology of the Centro Hospitalar do Porto, EPE-HSA from 2000 to 2009 was performed.

Results: 404 tumors of skin appendages were diagnosed. Only 3% of were malignant. The majority showed a follicular differentiation (62.6%).

Discussion: The review of the literature revealed a paucity of data for retrospective studies of tumors of skin appendages. Further studies are required for a better epidemiological characterization of these entities.

KEYWORDS – Carcinoma, Skin Appendage; Skin Neoplasms.
