Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin is a rare malignant adnexal neoplasm. It was first described by Lennox et al. in 1952. It is uncertain whether it is of apocrine or eccrine origin (Wright and Font, Cancer 44:1757–1768, 2 ; Mendoza and Helwig, Arch Dermatol 103:68–78, 3 ). Showing morphological similarity to mucinous carcinoma of the breast, it may be difficult to distinguish it from a cutaneous metastatic deposit of mucinous adenocarcinoma from a visceral primary lesion. Hence, it deserves attention not only for its scarcity but also for the challenge in determining its precise diagnosis and hence, planning its management. We present a case of primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin.
