Apocrine cystadenoma is a benign nevoid tumor of the skin occurring most commonly on the face. The tumor appears as a domeshaped translucent nodule. In more than half of the cases the lesion is pigmented, resembling a blue nevus, pigmented nevus, or pigmented basal cell epithelioma. It must be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of the pigmented lesions on the face.
