Mixed tumor of the skin, so called chondroid syringoma, is a benign epithelial neoplasm with glandular or ductal differentiation surrounded by myxoid stroma. It is most frequently located on the head and neck and presents as an asymptomatic, firm, subcutaneous nodule. Mixed tumor with follicular, sebaceous and apocrine differentiation is considered as an expression of the common embryologic origin of elements of the folliculo-sebaceous-apocrine unit. We report a case of mixed tumor of the skin with follicular, sebaceous and apocrine differentiation.
