Maybe the majority of the pathologists consider apocrine papillary cystadenoma as the favorite name for this morphologic variant of cystadenoma. Nonetheless, in order to [url="https://dermpathpro.com/blog/14/entry-142-merely-histological-detail-or-something-really-reportable/"]simplify my report[/url], I’d call this just cystadenoma because those micropapillary and adenomatous areas are merely histological details since they are meaningless to clinicopathological correlation, therapeutic decision making, or behavior prediction for this cutaneous cystic lesion.
