Extraordinary Case Reports

We present an example of tubular carcinoma that developed within a nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn on the scalp of a 53-year-old woman. The neoplasm showed features of sebaceous and apocrine differentiation. We review the literature about the malignant neoplasms arising in the nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn.
