Solid cystic hidradenoma with focal mucinous metaplasia. I think the higher magnification may show some hyperchromasia and pleomorphism but I think it still falls in the atypical hidradenoma spectrum not malignat.

My diagnosis was apocrine hidradenoma. I believe Kazakov classifies it as hidradenoma. Requena (with Ackerman in 1998) classify it as apocrine hidradenoma.
