• Surgeons performing soft-tissue surgery in the head and neck area occasionally will encounter other varieties of neoplasms, such as skin-appendage tumors, in addition to basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Sweat gland tumors are the most common variety of the skin-appendage tumors and the most easily confused with basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. We report this case to illustrate this fact. The classification of sweat gland tumors and their suggested management are reviewed.
