Mucinous Carcinoma is a malignant lesion that arises from the integumentary glands which I rarely encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  The majority of Mucinous Carcinomas arise from the eyelid in the glands of Moll.  Clinically, Mucinous Carcinomas apepar as flesh colored or red papules which may be ulcerated.  Local recurrence after excision of Mucinous Carcinomas is very common but distant metastasis is fortunately rare.  The treatment of Mucinous Carcinomas is surgical excision.
