Hyperplastic sensory corpuscles in nevus sebaceus of labia minora pudendi. A case report
MetadataShow full item record
A vulvar case of nevus sebaceus is presented. During the routine histopatological examination, attention was drawn by several corpuscular structures. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated that they were sensory corpuscles, identified respectively as Meissner-like and glomerular corpuscles. Nevertheless, compared with typical Meissner corpuscles from digital glabrous skin, Meissner-like corpuscles identified here were bigger, the axon showed an irregular course, and the lamellar cells were smaller. Regarding the glomerular corpuscles they were bigger but with a normal arrangement of the corpuscular constituents. These findings suggest that these cutaneous sensory corpuscles are part of the nevus sebaceus hamartoma. © 2018 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd
