Hidradenocarcinoma also known as malignant nodular hidradenoma or clear cell hidradenocarcinoma are very uncommon skin adnexal tumors of sweat gland origin known to have a high potential for local reccurence and metastasis. Histologically it is a challenge to diagnose because it very commonly mimics several metastatic visceral malignancies and other non-aggressive skin adnexal tumors. We highlight here the importance of timely diagnosis of hidradenocarcinoma and its differentiation from other look alike because of its poor prognosis and uncertain response to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
