Hidradenocarcinoma of the temporal area successfully treated with concomitant electrochemotherapy and radiotherapy
Hidradenocarcinoma, the malignant counterpart of hidradenoma, is an extremely rare malignant tumour which may exhibit an aggressive clinical course. The standard primary treatment is wide local excision with or without lymph node dissection. Radiotherapy has also been used in some cases but with controversial outcomes. At the University of Thessaly - Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospital of Larissa, Greece, we successfully treated a hidradenocarcinoma of the skin of the temporoparietal area, using a combination of electrochemotherapy and radiotherapy.
