Euclid JM, Wilcox RA, Muhlnickel CJ, Nimmo J., Feline apocrine ductular carcinoma, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (3): 170-174, 2023. Cutaneous apocrine ductular carcinoma, a rare tumour of apocrine sweat gland origin in cats, was diagnosed in the dorsal neck region of a 13-year-old feline domestic shorthair patient. Histopathological examination of biopsy material revealed an ulcerated infiltrative adenocarcinoma located in the dermis and subcutis with a tubuloacinar morphology in a distinct double-layered epithelial structure, typical of ductular origin. Surgical removal of the carcinoma resulted in resolution of the case. Images of case are provided.
