Abstract:

Signet-Ring Cell/Histiocytoid Carcinoma (SRCHC) is a very rare skin adnexal cancer that has been to occur mainly in the eyelid and axilla. SRCHC is characterized by composed of signet-ring cells and histiocytoid epithelial cells pathologically. We report a 55-year-old man who was diagnosed with SRCHC. A 55-year-old Korean male visited the hospital with a growing axillary mass that had appeared two years ago. Computerized tomography and positron-emission tomography showed a skin-involved mass and regional lymph node in the axilla. Signet ring cell and histiocytoid epithelial cell were found in his biopsy tissue. Immunohistology examination showed a decrease in E-cadherin, estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor negative, and androgen receptor positive. Based on the above findings, SRCHC was diagnosed. Genetic analysis using next-generation sequencing revealed mutations in PIK3CA (c263G>A, pR88Q), CDH1 frameshift (c1570_1574 del CGGAT, pR524fs), and TP53 (c329G>T, pR110L). The patient underwent surgical resection and adjuvant radiotherapy. Given the limited number of known cases, further clinicopathological and genetic analyses are needed.
