Abstract

Dermatofibromas (DF) are common skin lesions composed of a dermal proliferation of fibroblasts and histiocytes. Among the variants of DFs, adenodermatofibroma are characterized by a dense proliferation of fibroblasts and histiocytes admixed with entrapped dilated glandular structures. We report two additional cases of adenodermatofibromas, review the literature, theorize on the histopathogenesis of this variant, and suggest that there are different patterns among adenodermatofibromas, from primarily cystic to primarily glandular.
