Fox Fordyce Disease -Dermatopathology 

Dr  Sampurna Roy  MD   


Fox - Fordyce Disease (Apocrine Miliaria):

Fox-Fordyce disease is a rare skin disease manifesting as multiple pruritic follicular papules involving the skin-bearing apocrine glands.

Patients usually present with numerous uniform, 2-3-mm, skin-colored to light brown, dome-shaped papules with smooth surface, which are distributed in the apocrine gland-containing areas.

Histological features include infundibular spongiosis, and dilation, hyperkeratosis, plugging, acanthosis, and lymphohistiocytic infiltrate.

Focal spongiosis in upper infundibulum associated with a perifollicular lymphohistiocytic infiltrate are key features in diagnosing this condition.
