Abstract

Four cases of tumours arising from Moll's glands, two benign mixed tumours of the skin (chondroid syringomas) and two adenocarcinomas, are reported. Three of the patients were over 40 years old. Contrary to the common assumption that malignant Moll's gland tumours are of low-grade malignancy, the two adenocarcinomas described here were highly malignant. Despite vigorous treatment, including orbital exenteration and lymph node resection, one was rapidly fatal and the other recurred with extensive involvement of the paranasal sinuses.
