Carcinoembryonic antigen was demonstrated in sweat gland adenomas by immunostaining using standard immunoperoxidase techniques. Carcinoembryonic antigen could not be found in adnexal tumors derived from the pilar and sebaceous apparatus. The demonstration of this specific antigen in certain sweat gland tumors may be helpful in the recognition and classification of these kinds of lesions.
