Abstract

Abstract. Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a recently described rare adnexal neoplasm showing benign histologic features but a locally aggressive behavior. It has most commonly been reported to occur on the face but it has also been noted in the axilla and buttock. We describe a 41‐year‐old white male with a 5‐year history of MAC on the scalp and treatment by Mohs micrographic surgery. To our knowledge, this is the first case of MAC reported to occur on the scalp. 1989 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.
